Homer Jennings Bamboo Fly Rod 7'6" 2/2 #3


A nice Homer Jennings bamboo fly rod, 7'6", 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #3 line. The rod weighs 3.4 ounces on my scale. The serial number #620, the maker's mark, and the rod specs are all inked on the butt, and on an adjacent flat "16.07.06" is also inked which I presume to be the date of manufacture. The rod may have been lawn cast but is in pristine condition. Nice dry fly action. There is a tiny bit of brassing to the edge of the buttcap but I suspect that is from rubbing in the tube bag. Blonde cane done in a three up node pattern. Mirrored tips. The nodes  have been nicely pressed to minimize their size. The main wraps are a light honey color with tiny black edges. Oxidized agate stripper and the snakes are light wire. The varnish is superb (it does m heard good to see a maker produce varnish like this!). Oxidized truncated swiss-style ferrules. The grip is 6" and turned to a front loaded large cigar. The seat features a mortised and lightly colored wood which matches the blank nicely, and over that is an oxidized nickel silver cap and ring. The rod packs into a tan cloth bag with a leather hang tab. The aluminum rod tube is painted matte gray with a brass collar and top with a felt pad glued into the bottom of it. One of the nicer rods I've seen in a while.

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.

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).
