Gary Howells Fly Rod 8' 2/2 #4

A lightly fished G.H. Howells 8' fly rod in near mint condition. Built for a #4 line, this rod weighs 3 5/8 ounces and is marked serial #5822. The varnish is superb and the rod is constructed in a two-up node pattern. The wraps are brown with yellow edges. It has an uplocking screw lock reel seat over a varnished walnut spacer. The grip is done in the western style and has a faint trace of hand soiling. This rod has a surprisingly sweet feeling medium action and all sections are straight as a pin. A rare example of a classic American maker. Red cloth bag with aluminum tube bearing the G.H. Howells 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.
