Jim Schaaf The Flame Treated Bamboo Fly Rod 8' 2/2 #6


A Jim Schaaf bamboo fly rod, 8', 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #6 line. Designated "The Flame Treated Fly Rod" from the label on the tube. The rod weighs 4.9 ounces on my scale. Serial number "80-2-85" which is inked on the shaft, above the male ferrules on each tip, and also noted on the tube label. Medium action. Lightly used original condition with some soiling to the grip and one tip has a small chip in the varnish near where the serial number is inked just above the male ferrule. I did notice a light clicking to the ferrule when the rod was mounted, though neither the male nor female seems loose, so I suspect the males were just overlapped a tiny bit. Flamed cane done in a three up node pattern construction. Brown wraps with light brown tipping. Carbide stripper. Oxidized ferrules. 6 1/2" long grip that's shaped to a western profile with a bit of hand soiling. The reel seat is an aluminum downlocking screwlock over a varnished wood spacer with a nickel silver slotted cap that has the maker's mark stamped into the back. The rod packs into a khaki bag and an aluminum tube with a data sticker affixed to it.

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.
