Lancaster, R.W. - Boulder River 8' 4 pc. 5-6wt Bamboo Rod




For sale here is an R.W. Lancaster (Bob Lancaster) Boulder River 8'0" 4/2 5-6wt bamboo rod. Serial no. 58v84. The rod is in excellent original condition, all sections are full length and straight. 

Lancaster was greatly influenced by Paul H. Young's work. Handsome mottle-flamed tempering. Matte oil finish with chestnut brown wraps. The original owner's name is inscribed on the butt along with the rod information. The tips feature one or two dots to distinguish them from one another. Garrison-style hook keeper. Cigar grip 6" in length with only light soiling. Dual nickel silver sliding band reel seat over a mortised walnut spacer with a nickel silver button butt-cap. The upper ring has lost much of its bluing and the bottom band and butt-cap show wear. There are light dents in the spacer. The blued Swiss-style ferrules are size 11/64, 15/64, and 19/64 - all with a perfect fit. The rod weighs 5.10 oz. 

The action is a powerful, full-flexing medium-fast for a five or six weight line. The four-piece construction makes this rod easily transportable and great for backcountry journeys. Includes original plaid bag and original tube.
