For sale here is a quite special Walt Carpenter bamboo rod. The original owner dubbed it the "North Pond". As he so aptly states it, "it's nothing special, just a pond in the Northwoods of Maine with exquisite brook trout."
8' 3/2 5-6wt Browntone. Serial no. 20580. The rod is in excellent overall condition. All sections are full length and reasonably straight. Fished carefully.
Moderately tempered browntone cane with chestnut wraps and black tipping. Black, gold, and purple tipping at the winding check and male ferrules. The tips are numbered for convenience. Ring hook keeper. Reverse half wells grip measuring 6 3/4" in length with moderate soiling. Bright aluminum up-locking reel seat over a walnut spacer. The locking ring features the "W.E. Carpenter MAKER" stamp. The ferrules have an excellent fit. One of the tip tops is slightly misshapen but this is of no concern. The rod weighs 4.60 oz. Smooth action on the medium side of medium-fast.
Includes the original bag and fine Arne Mason leather tube with "W.E. Carpenter MAKER" stamp on the cap.
Don't miss out on this one!
