Orvis Traveler Bamboo Rod 8' 4/1 6-7 weight - rare model


For sale here is an 8 foot Orvis Traveler bamboo rod. This is an extremely scarce model made by Orvis in 1962 and only offered for a few years. This rod is the most desirable eight foot length model that is intended for a 6 or 7 weight line. The rod weighs 4.6 oz and includes a 17/64 ferrule on the second section, while most of these 8' Traveler models were made with a size 18/64 ferrule and the rods being intended for a 7 or 8 weight line. The other ferrules measure 13/64 and 9/64. The Traveler model rod was the first of its kind to be intended especially for the traveling, fly fishing businessman. The rod remains in excellent condition with original bag and tube. All sections are full-length, straight, and have never been repaired. These rods originally came with one tip. Don't miss out on this opportunity to own a very rare Orvis rod!
