Orvis Battenkill Fly Rod 7' 2/2 #6


A nice Orvis Battenkill bamboo fly rod, 7', 2-piece, 2-tip, built for a #6 (HDH) though I suspect it would handle a #5 nicely too. Medium action. Serial #31195, built in 1961. Impregnated cane done in a three up node pattern. The rod is nice and straight and the ferrule fits are good. Good used condition with some soiling to the grip and a few minor hook digs here and there but nothing particularly serious that I could find. The oxidation on the ferrules and tip tops has faded a bit. Wrapped apricot throughout. Hook keeper. 6" grip shaped to a medium-blunt cigar. Aluminum downlocking screwlock seat over what appears to be a walnut spacer. The rod packs into a green poplin bag and the original aluminum tube with the data sticker affixed to it.

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.
