Mario Wojnicki 257F6 Bamboo Fly Rod 8'6" 2/2 #6


A Mario Wojnicki 257F6 bamboo fly rod, 8'6", 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #6 line. Serial #8168. The rod weighs 4.5 ounces on my scale. Mario's name and the rod model and serial numbers are inked on the shaft. Fast full flexing action. The rod is straight and the ferrules seat well. Excellent lightly used condition with some soiling to the grip and two small scratches to the varnish in one area on the butt, though the rod is very clean overall. Straw colored cane done in a two opposed node pattern. The varnish is in good shape overall. Wrapped in a light apricot color with red tipping at the grip, signature wrap, male ferrules, and tip tops. Carbide stripper and dark snakes and tip tops. Truncated swiss-style ferrules that are oxidized pewter. The grip is a Powell style with a flare in the middle and a bulb shape at the top which tapers down into the cane. The reel seat is an aluminum uplocking slide band over a varnished wooden spacer and a hidden pocket cap in the heel. The slide band has Mario's name stamped into the backside opposite the pocket and the nut is a slightly darker oxidized color. The bottom of the seat is a cork and composite cap which holds the hardware on. The rod packs into the original gray cloth bag and tube.

Shipping Information

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.

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.
