Orvis Wes Jordan 7'6 2/2 5wt Bamboo Rod


For sale here is an impregnated Orvis "Wes Jordan" 7'6" 2/2 6wt (H.D.G.) bamboo rod. Serial no. 66715. Made in 1975 by Rod White. The rod remains in excellent++ original condition with only the slightest evidence of being handled. All sections are full length and straight. 

The rod features a moderately tempered impregnated blank with transparent molasses colored wraps. The varnish over the wraps and script remains in pristine condition. The script is as clean and bold as the day it was written and features the original owner's name along with the usual information. U-shaped hookkeeper. Cigar grip measuring 6 1/2" with only light soiling. Aluminum down-locking reel seat over a walnut spacer. The butt cap is stamped with the original owner's initials. The blued nickel silver step-down ferrules fit together nice and tight as they should. The action is a versatile medium-fast. Smooth, crisp, and with excellent recovery. The rod is just as well suited for dries as it is wet flies. Although the rod is marked as a 6wt a line size down is best; as is the case with most Orvis bamboo rods. The rod weighs 3.80 oz. Includes the original green bag and classic leather tube featured with most Wes Jordan rods. 

Don't miss out on this classic model from Orvis, they're not often seen in such fine original condition.
