Jones, Dean - 7 1/2' Penta 5wt Bamboo Rod

SKU: VFT4819

For sale here is a pentagonal bamboo rod made by the late Dean Jones of Oregon in 2001. He mentored under Frank Wire who built rods from the 30s to the 60s. It's extremely hard to find his rods on the resale market. This one is 7 1/2 feet long with two sections and two tips, both having sets in them. I would recommend a 5 wt line. Super-Z type ferrules are size 13/64 with a good fit. The action of the rod is medium fast and powerful enough throughout for large flies. Presumably the original bag and tube accompanies the sale. Joe Beelart writes at length about Mr. Jones in his wonderful book, "Oregon Bamboo".
