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


For sale here is a Paul H. Young Martha Marie bamboo rod. Serial #3744. 7'6 2/2 5wt. The rod is in excellent+ condition. Richly flamed cane with no issues. The rod was made by Paul H Young and delivered in 1958, with Paul's writing on the rod. All cork reel seat with a stunning nickel silver ring with fine knurling and a black anodized aluminum butt cap in perfect condition. Oxidized hardware and Super-Z ferrules. Small reverse half wells / Powell-style grip measures 5.3". Exquisite gold wraps and varnish work. There is a minor hook dig on the butt section, but Bob Summers applied a bit of over-varnish to this area and it's not a concern. Bob recently sold this rod to my customer and this is why you see Bob's handwriting on the tube label. The original satin bag is in good condition, with some tape covering a hole in the bottom of the bag where the butt section goes. Original Champion-style tube in great shape also.
