Orvis Traveler 9' 6-7wt Bamboo Rod


For sale here is an impregnated Orvis Traveler 9' 4/1 6-7wt bamboo rod. Serial no. 32546, made in 1962. This is an extremely scarce model made by Orvis in the early 1960s and only offered for a few years. The Traveler model rod was the first of its kind to be intended especially for the traveling, fly-fishing businessman. Made originally with one tip section. The rod remains in excellent+ condition appearing to have been used sparingly. All sections are full-length, straight, and have never been repaired.

Moderately tempered cane with caramel colored wraps and blued guides. The script remains clean and bold free of any defects. U-shaped hook-keeper. Cigar grip 6 1/2" in length with only light soiling. Aluminum down-locking reel seat with a removable butt cap for a fighting butt. Unfortunately, the fighting butt has been lost. The ferrules are size 10/64, 15/64, and 19/64. The fit is excellent. The rod weighs 6.90 oz. Medium-fast action. Includes the original grey bag and original tube.
