James Reams Fly Rod 8'3" 2/2 #5


A nice Jim Reams bamboo fly rod, 8'3", 2-piece, 2-tips, built for a #5 line. Hollow-built construction. Serial number "151-7-05HB" lettered on the shaft, and one flat right "James L Reams, Maker". The rod weighs 3.80 oz and is on the faster side of medium fast with a pleasing, authoritative action. Excellent plus, lightly used condition. Lightly tempered cane with an almost pumpkin-tone color, and the nodes are done in a two-opposed pattern. Transparent honey wraps with oxblood tipping. Chestnut and oxblood tipping at the winding check and ferrules. Blued hardware throughout. Swiss-style ferrules. Curvy full-wells grip 6 1/4" in length with only the lightest bit of soiling. Oxidized nickel silver up-locking reel seat over a beautiful mortised wood spacer, with some brassing to the rear cork check, slide ring, and the cap at the very bottom of the spacer. The rod is straight and the ferrule fits are good. Includes original bag and tube with label.

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.
