Bogart/Horgren - "Fario Club" Bamboo Rod - 8'5 5/6wt


For sale here is a fine rod from the combined talents of Chris Bogart from Virginia (Shenandoah Rods) and Christian Horgren from Sweden (Fine Tackle). The rod is modeled after the widely popular Pezon et Michel "Fario Club" - 2.57 metres (8'5") for a 5 or 6 line. The rod is in near mint condition. Medium-light, straw colored cane with translucent red wraps. The signature wrap is red, white, and blue; a nod to Pezon. The rod features blued guides and ferrules. U-shaped hook-keeper. The bronze winding check is a replica of the original used by P&M. The Ritz style grip is in excellent condition with only one light blemish. Bronze colored aluminum down-locking reel seat with a fine bamboo spacer. In keeping true to the original the rod is built with a staggered ferrule. To accommodate for the differing lengths of the sections the bamboo ferrule plug is 8 1/2", P&M is quite well known for this. The ferrule is size 15/64, the fit is perfect. Parabolic action on the faster side of medium-fast. The rod weighs 5.20 oz.  

Pezon et Michel taper description:

"provides a uniform yield at all distances with minimum exertion and maximum accuracy... The line can be held very high during the backward cast, giving a long range."

Rod includes original bag and tube. Don't miss a chance to own this classic taper from two exceptional makers.
