A beautiful mint, uncast Hunt Pattern from a run of rods I made in the early-to-mid 1990's. This model is a medium dry fly action, a great all around taper that will cover most kinds of trout fishing. The grip is a slim cigar with standard swiss ferrules and the rod has my "may rose" wraps. The varnish is glass-perfect. The reelseat is my standard oxodized cap and ring with a burl walnut spacer. The rod is a great trout taper in mint condition that should cover all but the largest water. About the only downside I can think of is that this rod has no ferrule plugs since it predates when I started to supply them, though I will happily make a pair to fit for an extra $50.
Lastly, this rod comes to me from a friend who suffered severe losses during the recent flooding in Vermont. We have reduced our fees in order to help him get back on his feet (due to this factor we also expect paypal fees to be covered by purchaser, for those who wish to pay via the service). On his behalf we have also priced it to move quickly, as current retail is well above the listed price. Comes with standard poplin bag and high-strength aluminum tube with brass, screw-top hardware.
