Everett Garrison Model 212E Bamboo Fly Rod 8' 2/2


A beautiful Garrison 212E fly rod, 8', 2-piece, and 2-tips. M-8-7 serial number indicating a 1969 manufacture date. Excellent to near mint original condition, with no ferrule wrap cracks and very little brassing to the inner guides. Pleasing medium action. Spiral node pattern with resorcinol glue. Later style varnish that is firm and lustrous. The varnish appears to have been rubbed out when it was sold in 1981. The wraps are brown at the keeper and ferrules and amber at the guides. One tip is wrapped red at the tip top and the other green. The grip is a 7" long blunt cigar with a cork reel seat. A one piece formed pocket cap with a knurled slide band ring. The grip and seat have a minute bit of soiling. Super Z ferrules that are polished bright. The ferrule fits are excellent and the rod is very straight. Original bag and aluminum tube with brass fittings. It is very very hard to find a Garrison in this kind of condition and this is one of his most celebrated tapers (when I discussed this rod with Hoagy Carmichael, the first words out of his mouth were "Now that is a GREAT taper"!).

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.
