A very nice RL Winston bamboo fly rod, 8'6", 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #8 line. Serial #2533. The rod weighs 5.3 ounces on my scale. This rod is totally mint, never been cast. Montana era model. Strong DF action, a real cannon. It also has one of the finest coats of varnish I have come across, perfectly flat and flawless. Light brown wraps with black edges at the keeper, ferrules, and tip tops. The rod is as straight as the day it left the shop. The 7" long grip is perfect for salmon or steelhead fishing and styled to a full wells with nice crisp edges. The reel seate is a nickel silver downlocking screwlock witha nickel silver pocket cap and mortised wood spacer. The bottom camp is engraved "RL Winston, Rod Co". The rod packs into a red cloth bag and the tube is brown crackle paint with a gold anodized collar and top with a tasteful gold and brown Winston sticker. A very fine example of a Montana era Winston that's perfect for single handed salmon and steelhead fishing.
