Orvis Manchester Bamboo Fly Rod 8'6" 3/2 #6/7


A nice Orvis Manchester model fly rod, 8'6", 3-piece, 2-tips, built for a #7 or a #6 if you like a quicker action. Serial #8400. 5.3 ounces. Used but very good serviceable condition. Medium action. Dark impregnated cane in a three up node pattern. The wraps are a dark garnet color with a small carbide stripper and black HSS snake guides. Oxidized step ferrules though the fit is a little tight - a quick cleaning should take care of that though. The tips have a slight downward set. "Manchester, Orvis, Impregnated, Pat Pend." lettered on the shaft. The grip is 6" long and done in a medium cigar profile and it shows a slight bit of hand soiling from use. The reel seat is an all aluminum downlocking screwlock with a pocket cap. The rod packs in a brown cloth bag. The rod tube is non-original and the aluminum top seems locked on the collar, but due to a split in the collar it can be twisted off.

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.
