A Marc Aroner Spring Creek fly rod, 7'6" 3-piece, 2-tips for a #6/7 fly line. Medium action. I built this Spring Creek sometime in the late 1980s. 98% new condition. This taper was initially developed as a variant of one of my salmon rods. My friend, the late Joe Garman, was a big fan of this action and it was he who suggested that with some tweaking this would make a great western trout rod for casting bigger flies. Features a black anodized uplocking screw lock handmade in my shop. A spectacular varnished and mortised walnut spacer with great tiger-maple-like ripples in the grain. Western or fishtail-style 5 1/2" grip with light soiling. Flawless varnished blonde cane in the 3 up node pattern. Olive wraps with unusual purple edges. Bronze high-speed steel snake guides. My swiss ferrules with a collar on the males with a recessed slant knurl. Ferrules are oxidized black. Olive poplin bag and polished aluminum tube with brass hardware.
This rod is perfect for bigger water and turning over larger flies with power and accuracy.
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.
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).
