Marc Aroner Spring Creek Fly Rod 7'6" 3/2 #4 DF


An Aroner Spring Creek fly rod, 7'6", 2-piece, 2-tips, built for a #4 line. I built this rod in the early 1990's and it is in very good condition with a very small amount of use. There is some slight brassing to the inner guides and the seat hardware edges. There is a small cosmetic flex crack to the mid male wrap. Fast DF action with a nice sized swell showing at the grip. Blonde cane oven tempered to a dark wheat straw. Three up node pattern construction and hand pressed nodes. Mirrored tips. Flawless varnish. The wraps are olive tipped maroon with an extra band of orange at the keeper only. Truncated swiss ferrules with a collar with recessed slant knurling and two trim marks on all the males. 5 1/4" blunt cigar grip. Nickel silver slide band seat with all the nickel silver parts oxidized. The seat is a spectacular stained birdseye maple (I think this is among the nicest pieces of wood I've seen in 35 years). Brass ferrule plugs. The rod packs into a light olive fine weave poplin bag and a polished aluminum tube and FE Thomas style brass hardware with the thick neoprene pads at the inside ends.
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.
