William Abrams Edwards Tribute Bamboo Fly Rod 8'6" 3/2 #5 [SALE PENDING]


A William Abrams Edwards Tribute bamboo fly rod, 8'6", 3-piece, 2-tip and built for a #5 line. 5.3 ounces. Fast DF action. Used condition, usable but has a bent stripping guide (fortunately the agate appears to be uncracked). The rod has some grip soiling and some cosmetic casting cracks at the ferrule wraps. The cane has been oven tempered with dark nodes. The tempering is extra heavy at each end of the sticks. The butt section is done in a three up node pattern, but I don't see that in the mid and tips. The main wraps are yellow with black edges. Some wraps show semi-penetration of varnish turning part of the wraps transparent. Black plastic front cork check. The grip is 5 1/2" long and shaped to a blunt cigar profile. The reel seat is a pocket cap and ring with a west coast maple burl. Green cloth bag and aluminum tube with brass fittings. The William Abrams data sticker is somewhat degraded rending it semi-legible.

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). Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. If an item is returned, we will issue a refund within 10 days upon receipt. Refunds will be either administered by providing a check or, when possible, by canceling a credit card purchase.
