Jennings Moran Fly Rod 7' 2/2 #4/5

SKU: 401

  • An excellent Jennings & Moran fly rod, 7', 2-piece, 2-tip, built for a #4/5 line. Serial #8453. Medium action. Very good used condition. Medium chestnut colored oven tempered cane. Three up node pattern in nicely pressed small nodes. Matte finish to the bamboo. I can't tell if the cane is impregnated or oil finished. Some line whip marks near the stripping guide could use some attention. The bright swiss style ferrules have a smooth fit. The rod is outfitted with chrome guides and a carbide stripper and is wrapped in white silk. Unfortunately, some of the wraps are showing a bit of blush. The ferrules are wrapped black with a brown edge. The keeper is on the wrap flat and is wrapped white (it turns transparent when varnished) and is edged in black and maroon. The inscription is 3 flats left and reads "Jennings and Moran" and 2 flats left "7' #4-5 No 8453". The grip is 5 1/2" long in a blunt cigar where the fattest part is 3/4 of the way to the front. The seat is a cork slide band with nickel silver ring and pocket cap. There is a small crunch mark in the cork from the ring. The rod comes with a finial style aluminum and cork ferrule plug, and in a grey cloth bag with stiffener. Packed in a leather rod tube with an aluminum insert and has a sewn-on leather plaque stamped "Tom Moran Rod Co". This is a rare offering.
