A nice Gary Howells fly rod, 7', 2-piece, 2 tip, built for a #4 line. Weighs 2.7 ounces. Serial #4069. The rod action is on the slower side of medium. Excellent used condition. The grip and seat have been cleaned but the rod is straight and the ferrule fits are right. The cane is a dark wheat straw oven temper done in a three up node pattern. The wraps are Gary's usual brown with yellow edges. SRMC #10 carbide stripper and chrome guides and tip tops. Excellent varnish. The grip is 5 1/2" long and done in the Western or Payne style. The reel seat is a mortised cork with an aluminum ring and pocket cap. Delrin bottom. The rod bag is bright red and the tube is all aluminum with Gary's data sticker in excellent original condition. It's rare to find Howells rods in this length and configuration.
