Orvis Caenis Bamboo Rod


For sale here is an ultra scarce bamboo rod made by Orvis in 1976 - the Caenis model. The Caenis model never appeared in Orvis' regularly published catalogs and was sold through their newsletter called "The Orvis News". There are currently only twenty-six known to exist in Greg Reynold's fantastic and highly useful Orvis Rod Database, along with five of the Yamame Special models, the same rod that was marketed in Japan.

The rod measures 6'9" with two sections and two tips and is designed for a three or four weight line. This particular example, serial number 78805, is in near mint condition showing very little use. The rod weighs 2 1/4 oz. Ferrules are size 10/64 and the ferrule fit is excellent. Dual knurled aluminum slide bands over an all-cork reel seat, brown wraps, bright guides, blued ferrules. Staggered ferrule design. Comes complete with its original tan bag, grey aluminum tube with engraved hexagonal cap, and green and silver foil label.

Truly one for the Orvis collector!

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).

Refunds will be either administered by providing a check or, when possible, by canceling a credit card purchase.
