Aroner 7'6" 3/2 #4 DF Hunt Pattern


New in on consignment is this superb 7'6" #4 3pc. 2-tip Hunt pattern with a "DF" action. Flawless spar varnish as though I just packed and shipped it from the shop. Dark walnut burl reel seat with only the barest hint of brassing to the cap, ring, and swiss ferrules. Rod is straight and tight. Wrapped in May Rose silk with orange edges. Keeper at the cork check wrap. This is an early style rod of mine before I stamped the butt cap with my logo. The rod shaft is lettered "Aroner 7 1/2 #4 DF Hunt Pattern". No rear check since with these earlier rods I often used the wooden lip of the walnut seat as the cork check. Very light use soiling of the grip. Comes with bag and brass topped tube correct for the period. You can click on the photos to the left for more detail.
