Orvis Rocky Mountain Fly/Spin Presentation Set


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.

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.
