Orvis "Traveler" Bamboo Rod 8' 4/2

SKU: VFT11734

For sale here is an 8 foot Orvis Traveler bamboo rod. This is an extremely scarce model made by Orvis in the early 1960s and only offered for a few years. This rod is the most desirable eight foot length model that is intended for a 7 (possibly 8) weight line. The rod weighs 4 3/4 oz. 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++ to near mint condition with original bag and tube. All sections are full-length, straight, and have never been repaired. I believe these rods originally came with only one tip, but the owner of this one had Orvis make an extra tip. The original tip was never damaged or repaired, the owner simply wanted an extra tip with the rod. Don't miss out on this opportunity to own a very rare Orvis rod!
