A nice Ron Kusse fly rod  7'6", 2-piece, 2-tips, built for a #4/5 line. Serial #9139. "Mirror tips" model. The hangtag states the weight as 3 3/4 oz but my scale has it at 4.5 oz. Fast DF action and in mint condition. This would appear to be the companion piece to our other listing, serial #9140, as both have one-piece varnished walnut grips and reel seats. Excellent varnish in a 3 up node pattern and a medium wheat straw temper color. Guide wraps are tan with maroon edges at the keeper, ferrules, and tip tops. There are 4 extra wraps at the keeper, purple, brown, tan, and maroon. The tips are mirrored.  The ferrules are Leonard step style and are oxidized jet black. The walnut grip is 5 3/4" long and turned to a slim cigar profile. The cap and ring seat is flatted, varnished Walnut and integrated into the grip. The cap and ring are oxidized and the cap bears the die stamp "Ron Kusse, Maker" opposite the wrap flat. The rod is packed in a cloth bag with Ron's hangtag. It comes with a spectacular all-brass tube.
