Darryl Whitehead Bamboo Fly Rod 6'6" 2/2 #5


A Darryl Whitehead bamboo fly rod, 6'6", 2-piece, 2-tip, built for what feels to me like a #5. Serial #26 with a manufacture date of 1990. Semi full flexing but fairly stiff action. 4.1 ounces. Lawn cast only condition. The cane is a light wheatstraw color done in a spiral node pattern. The main winds are transparent light yellow with cinnamon edges and extra edges at the keeper, ferrules, and tip-tops. The ferrule wraps are dark brown. Flawless varnish. The stripping guide is a #8 SRMC carbide with black snake guides. Swiss style ferrules are polished and engraved by Paolo Barbetti. The female ferrule also has a ferrule plug. The grip is a long 6 1/2" western style composed of 1/4" corks. The downlocking screw lock seat is ornately engraved nickel silver. The bottom of the pocket cap is engraved "D Whitehead, Maker, #26, 1990". A yellow cloth bag and a Holland leather tube complete the package.

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.
