Paul Young Martha Marie Bamboo Fly Rod 7'6" 2/2 #5


A nice Paul Young Martha Marie bamboo fly rod, 7'6", 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #5 line. Serial #4965 and it weighs 3.6 ounces. This is one of the later Todd Young models. Semi parabolic action. Light use with the start of a cosmetic casting crack at the ferrule wrap and a bit of brassing to the inner guides, but very good overall. There is no hand soiling to the grip. Flamed oven-tempered cane. Very good varnish and brown wraps. Carbide stripper and black snakes and tip tops. Super Z style ferrule which is oxidized and shows no brassing at all. The 5 1/2" grip is styled to a half wells. The seat is full length cork with a cap and ring, both of which are oxidized. The cap has the "Paul H Young Co / Detroit-Mich" stamped in a cartouche. The seat is mortised. Very light tan bag and brushed aluminum case with brass fittings.

Shipping Information
We ship at cost to the buyer and in the majority of cases do so via UPS with full insurance and signature. There are cheaper options but our experience has been that you get what you pay for and that it's not worth taking risks when shipping what are often one-of-a-kind items. Your shipping estimate will be calculated at checkout and if you have any questions please contact us. Please note the buyers are responsible for any applicable import duties or fees that may levied. Due to the importance of packing items carefully please allow up to two weeks for arrival (depending on how busy we are) though we certainly do our best to get items to you as expeditiously as possible.
Other Terms
Unless otherwise noted, all items come with a 3-day inspection period during which they can be returned to us for a full refund (provided that they are in the same condition in which they left our shop). Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. If an item is returned, we will issue a refund within 10 days upon receipt. Refunds will be either administered by providing a check or, when possible, by canceling a credit card purchase.
