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


A Gary Howells bamboo fly rod, 7'6", 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #4 line. Serial #4637. The rod weighs 3.1 ounces on my scale. Used but in excellent condition with no defects. The action is a bit on the slower side of medium. Oven tempered cane with slightly darker nodes arranged in a three up pattern. The main wraps are brown with yellow edges and one band of red at the keeper. The stripping guide is a #8 SRMC carbide and the snake guides and tip tops are chrome. The varnish is in perfect condition except for one tiny chip just above the keeper wrap. The grip is 5 1/2" long and styled to a Western profile, with a little bit of modest hand soiling. The seat is flatted all cork with an aluminum ring and pocket cap with a black plastic bottom cap. The rod comes with the original maroon Howells bag and the aluminum case with the Howells data sticker. The rod is also accompanied by a letter from Gary to the customer.

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.
