An Aroner 7'6" Hunt Pattern fly rod, 3-piece, 2-tip for a #5 line weight. This Hunt Pattern has a DF action, mirrored tips, medium flametone cane. May rose wraps. Slim cigar grip, dark burl walnut cap and ring seat.
Shows modest fishing use, light soiling of grip, brassing to rear cork check, butt cap and edge wear to ferrule welt. Truncated swiss ferrule with slant knurl inset on the male collar. Varnish is in excellent condition. No die stamp on the butt cap so this is a fairly early rod of mine. This rod pre-dated my supplying ferrule plugs so I have supplied a set that I've recently made. Period bag and brass top tube.
All in all, a well-cared-for fishing instrument looking to serve a new master!
