Gus Nevros Fly Rod 6'5" 2/3 #3

1192

A Gus Nevros Penta fly rod, 6'5", 2-piece, 3-tip, and built for a #3 line. 2.6 ounces. Delicate full flexing action. Near mint condition with a tiny amount of brassing to the inner guides being the only sign of use I could find. 5 strip pentagonal construction. Wrapped brown with orange and black edges fore and aft as well as a light scheme of intermediates. Artificial stripper and black snake guides. The rod is dated April of 1982, signed by Gus, and with the customer's name on it. The swiss ferrules are oxidized. Typical of Gus' careful craftsmanship the front of the grip is a varnished 34" walnut cork check, perfectly mated to the 5" long medium cigar. The 1 3/4" reel seat is mated to a 2" long walnut spacer with a knob to retain the nickel silver oxidized pocket cap. Both wood pieces have the grain aligned with each other and with the wrap flat. An oxidized slide ban completes the reel seat. As stated, the rod comes with three tips, however one tip has a slash mark in the cane that cuts into the power fibers and I suspect that this tip was a "throw in". The rod packs in a dark brown fitted cloth bag with a stiffener. There is also a pocket offered for holding two nonslip pads for pulling the rod apart. Nice touch! Rodon brushed aluminum and brass topped tube obtained by Gus in a trade for the Leonard Schaublin lathe with Ron Beasley, the owner of Rodon. An ornately turned walnut ferrule plugs is included with the rod.
