Don Schroeder Fly Rod 8'6" 2/2 #5


A nice Don Schroeder fly rod, 8'6", 2-Piece, 2-tip, built for a #5 line. Serial number 54613. Weighs 5.1 ounces. Fast DF action. Near mint, lightly used condition. The grip is clean with just the tiniest hint of hand soiling, the rod is straight and the ferrule fits are good. The only sign of use is some light wear to the inside of the guides. Lightly flamed cane in a two-opposed node pattern, laid out in a spiral pattern. The wraps are dark maroon with some windaways at the keeper and the male ferrule. The keeper is one flat right and the lettering is two flats right. Super Z style swiss ferrules are oxidized. The rod comes with an aluminum, brass, and cork ferrule plug. The grip is 6 1/2" long full wells profile with only a tiny amount of hand soiling. The reel seat is a downlocking screw lock with both the threaded barrel and the walnut insert mortised. An aluminum cap fits on the bottom. The rod packs into a dark maroon cloth bag and a brass topped aluminum tube with the DG Schroeder data sticker.

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.
