Dana Gray -- Carlson Four Quad 8' 3/2 #5 Fly Rod

SKU: VFT11422

For sale here is a rod you won't find on the resale market very often, a Carlson Four quad made by Dana Gray, owner of the Carlson Rod Company. Dana is at the top of the list of worldwide cane rod makers and it's well known that his waiting list for a new rod is ~ seven years. This rod has been fished but remains in excellent +++ condition. There is a tiny mark on the wood spacer and a few very slight marks on the surface of the varnish. You have to look extremely close to notice them though.

Dana uses highest quality bamboo culms that are 50 years old in constructing these beauties. He makes his own ferrules. The guides and ferrules on this rod offered here are oxidized and the finish remains 100% intact, even on the tip tops where the wear develops the quickest over time from contact with the fly line. All wraps are still 100% perfect. Anything you see in the photos is glare from the natural light or glare from the other metal close by. The aluminum up-locking reel seat is unblemished. The grip shows very little use. The rod comes with the original bag and brass-capped and die-stamped tube.

Don't miss this chance to be the proud owner of a very historic rod and one that is coveted by all cane rod enthusiasts!
