Rick Robbins Mainstem Model Fly Rod 8' 3/2 #4


A nice Rick Robbins "Mainstem" model fly rod, 8', 3-piece, 2-tip, built for a #4 line. Serial #615. 4.5 ounces. Looks to be in mint unused condition. Medium action flexing all the way down to the large swell that is one of Rick's signature features. Light wheatstraw oven temper cane and a three up node pattern. Tan wraps with red edges. Darker brown at the ferrules. Snake brand guides. Ferrules are oxidized and utilize the Maxwell-Marinaro style. Tips are mirrored. 5 1/2" long cigar grip. Maple cap and ring seat hardware which has some nice touches with the small knurls and there is a band of nickel silver inlaid lengthwise into the seat to keep the band from digging into the wood. The butt cap is stamped "Rick Robbins, Maker" in a cartouche. The rod is packed in a tan cloth bag and an aluminum tube with brass top and collar and Rick's data sticker on the tube and an oversock for the tube.

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.
