Everett Garrison Model 228 Bamboo Rod 9' 1/8" 3/2


For sale here is a scarce Everett Garrison Model 228 light salmon/steelhead rod - 9 1/8' in length with three sections and two tips. Serial number T-9.125-1 marked on each section. Made in 1950. The rod is in excellent+ refinished condition. All sections are full length and void of any repairs.

The original script was saved in the refinishing process though it is a bit smudged. The original grip measures 7" in length with mild soiling and light ridging throughout. Nickel silver cap and ring reel seat over cork spacer. The seat remains in excellent condition. The Super-Z brand ferrules have 14/64 and 21/64 with a perfect fit. The rod weighs 5.90 oz. Medium-fast action. An eight weight line feels best. Includes the original bag with mid section ferrule plug tethered to the top. Likely a replacement tube but a nice fit.

Don't hesitate on this Garrison rod at this price! Offered at quite the bargain given the incorrect silk colors used in the refinish process. An easy fix for the next owner, but also a helluva classic fishing rod as-is for salmon or steelhead!
