RW Lancaster Bighorn Model Fly Rod 7'6" 4/2 #5/6


An RW Lancaster fly rod, 7'6", 4-piece, 2-tips, 2-mids, built for a #5 or #6 line. "Bighorn" model, serial number 271UT. Fast, DF style action. Near mint condition. Slight brassing to the inner guides are the only sign of use I could find. A unique setup given that its a 4-piece model with an extra tip and extra mid. Mottled flamed cane. The nodes are a tad grainy and are randomly spaced. Truncated swiss ferrules which are oxidized and show no signs of brassing. The label on the rod tube indicates that the rod is tun oil impregnated, and the finish is matte. Tip one has a short open seasm. The keepers is on the wrap flat and the stripper is ceramic, possibly a Fuji. The grip is 6 1/2" long in a half wells configuration. Care has been taken to fill the cork pores in the grip. The reel seat is of commercial origin in a downlocking nickel silver screwlock. The wood spacer looks like mortised stabilized figured maple. Packs in a plaid bag and aluminum tube. The total length of the tube is 24 1/2", about as packable as they come!
