Here we have an Orvis presentation fly/spin set, one of 125 that Orvis made as a limited set. It consists of two unused rods in a red velvet-lined vinyl-covered hardwood presentation case. The first rod is a Rocky Mountain fly rod serial #38179 6'6" 3-piece, 2-tip construction. No line weight listed. This was built by Cal Kinner and George Reed and inspected by Wes Jordan in 1964. The original owner, "R. S. Dimesky" is labeled on rod shaft. The ferrules show signs of some corrosion and could use a cleaning in order to fit together. The second rod is Rocky Mountain spinning rod serial #37037 6'6" with one tip. The same details apply as with the first rod, in terms of makers, date of manufacture, and Wes Jordan inspection. Ferrule corrosion present here as well. These sets were produced from 1964 to 1968. This set comes with two letters explaining the set and with some interesting context about the Orvis shop at the time. A nice piece of history here for the Orvis aficionado.
