Gary Howells Bamboo Fly Rod 8'6" 2/2 #6


A nice Gary Howells bamboo fly rod, 8'6", 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #6 line. Serial #4243. 4 1/4 ounces according to the label, but my scale has it a tiny bit over that at 4.7 ounces. Very minimal use with only a hint of grip soiling. Wheatstraw oven tempered cane done in a three up node pattern. Excellent varnish. Brown main wraps with yellow edges. Chrome snake guides and tip tops. The ferrule fits are tight and the overall rod is straight. The grip is 6" long and done in a western profile with a hidden pocket cap for the uplocking aluminum screwlock. The wood spacer is a varnished zebra wood. The rod packs into a red cloth bag and an aluminum tube with Gary's data sticker and comes with the letter from Gary to the original owner (indicating that the owner needed to come pick it up because Gary was leaving to go fishing!). 

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.
