An excellent Gary Howells fly rod, 7'6", 2-piece, 2-tip, for a #4 line. Serial #4127. Medium action rod, probably more on the quick end for Gary's rods. Very high quality varnish. Brown wraps with yellow edges, and red accents at the keeper. Ferrules are wrapped over in Gary's usual fashion. The grip is 11 corks and measures 5 1/2" long, carefully sculpted into a western style design. Polished aluminum uplocking screwlock with a Spanish cedar wood spacer. 3-up node pattern. Scarlet red rod bag. Aluminum rod tube with Gary's label and data on it. This consignor was a personal friend of Ernie Schwiebert as they both lived in Princeton, NJ. Ernie personally selected this rod for the owner's use. Shows signs of well-cared for use but is good and straight and ready to go. A nice example of Gary's work.
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.
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.
