Darryl Whitehead Bamboo Fly Rod 7'6" 3/2 #4


A Darryl Whitehead Presentation bamboo fly rod, 7'6", 3-piece, 2-tip and built for a #4. Serial #236. The rod weighs 3.8 ounces. Medium action. Near mint condition, it looks to have been lawn cast with a hint of brassing to the inner guides, but that's about it. The fittings include engraved ferrules and hardware. The reel seat, check, and ferrule plugs are made of what appears to be cape buffalo dark colored horn. Flamed cane done in a three up node pattern with mirrored tips. The cane is somewhat grainy in a few places. Excellent varnish. The wraps are black with white edges. The agate stripper is a light gray color and the snake guides are jet black. The swiss style ferrules are engraved and the welt has a fine knurl. "Whitehead" is roller die stamped on the butt female. The ferrule plugs are dark horn and nickel silver. The grip is 6" long and shaped to a blunt cigar profile. The rod comes in a black cloth bag and a black leather Arnie Mason tube with the rod serial number stamped on it. 

Shipping Information
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.
Other Terms
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.
