Gary Howells Bamboo Fly Rod 7'6" 2/2 #3/4


A nice Gary Howells bamboo fly rod, 7'6", 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #3 or #4 line. Serial #5321. The rod weighs 3.3 ounces on my scale. Lightly used condition with everything as it should be with one exception, which is that the top snake guide on one tip is slightly bent out of shape but seems well attached so I think the rod should perform just fine (I also spoke with Robert Bolt, and he is happy to repair this should the new owner wish). Medium to slow action. Oven tempered cane done in a two opposed pattern. Brown wraps with yellow edges at all guides and ferrules. #8 SRMC carbide stripper and chrome guides and tip tops. The ferrule fits are good and the rod is straight. Excellent varnish. The grip is 6" long and shaped to a western profile with a hidden pocket cap and the reel seat is an aluminum uplocking screwlock. The rod packs into a maroon bag and standard Howells tube with the data sticker affixed.

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.
