Bernard Ramanauskas (Eden Cane / Freestone) Bamboo Fly Rod 6'9" 2/2 #4


A nice Bernard Ramanauskas (Eden Cane / Freestone) bamboo fly rod, 6'9", 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for what feels to me like a #4. The rod weighs 3.2 ounces on my scale. "210Y-4" is inked on the shaft, along with a drawing of a nymph and a highly stylized signature. Medium fast action. Medium wheatstraw cane done in a nodeless scarfed configuration. The rod is lightly used with a small scratch to the varnish just above the writing on the shaft, some light reel foot impressions on the reel seat spacer but no other meaningful signs of use that I could find. The rod has transparent wraps with dark red decorative spiral wraps above the grip, and a single band of red in the middle of each guide wrap, with red tipping at the ferrules and tip tops. Agate stripper. The female ferrule has a dark red overwrap at its base. Truncated and oxidized swiss style ferrules. The grip is made of rattan and has a slim cigar profile with front and rear cork checks. The reel seat is a simple slide band over a varnished wood spacer and the cap and ring are oxidized and highly minimalistic in design. The bottom of the cap has the Eden Cane logo stamp on it. The rod packs into a tan cloth bag and comes with two tubes, one a black crackle paint aluminum tube with brass fittings (and the "Freestone" logo on the tube) as well as a leather Arne Mason tube with the Freestone logo stamped into the cap.
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.
