Everett Garrison Model 209 Bamboo Rod 8' 2/2 #5

SKU: VFT5239

For sale here is an Everett Garrison Model 209 bamboo rod. Serial Q-8-5 made in 1947. 8' 2/2 5wt. 3.9 oz. Cigar grip with slight hex formation to the top, down-locking swaged and knurled slide band reel-seat, Super Z stamped ferrules (size 13/64), resorcinol glue,clear wraps with chocolate brown to the hook keeper and ferrule stations. Original bag and tube. The rod is in excellent overall condition. All sections are full length. One tip section has been expertly scarfed between the last two snake guides and the consensus is that Garrison could have done it because the protective wraps on either end of the scarf are aged consistently with the other wraps. The other tip section's male ferrule wraps appear newer so the wraps could have been replaced at some point in the rod's life.
