Jon Parker Fly Rod 6'9" 2/2 #3


A nice John Parker fly rod, 6'9", 2-piece, 2-tip, built for a #3 line. Fast action. Mint or lawn cast only. Spiral node pattern in a lightly flamed cane. Mirrored tips. The wraps are a light transparent tan with black edges on all wraps. An extra band of red differentiates the two tips. Carbide stripper and HSS snake guides. The varnish is excellent, however it has been rubbed out and the rubbing compound was not cleaned away from the guide feet. All hardware, including the swiss ferrules, have been oxidized. The grip is rather large for a 7' rod, coming in at 7" and generously proportioned in a western profile. The reel seat wood is a highly figured mortised walnut and has an uplocking seat. The seat is properly proportioned as it fits and locks down a Hardy foot. Some sculpted walnut caps the seat and keeps the narrow payne style band in place. The rod comes in a light brown bag with a stiffener and a brushed aluminum tube with brass fittings.

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.
