Orvis Wes Jordan Bamboo Fly Rod 7'6" 2/1 #6


An Orvis "Wes Jordan" model bamboo fly rod, 7'6", 2-piece, 1-tip, and built for a #6 line. Serial #71190 built in 1976. Good used condition with some minor grip soiling, a few scratches to the reel seat, and some oxidation loss to the ferrules, but nothing outside of the normal cosmetic wear you'd see from use. Listed as 3 7/8 ounces on the shaft and that's what it weighs on my scale. The rod is straight and the ferrule fits are good. The original owner's name is inked on the butt along with the basic rod info. Medium action. Impregnated bamboo done in a three up node pattern. Hook keeper and a carbide stripper. Medium honey colored wraps with chrome guides and tip top. Oxidized ferrules, though some has faded. 6 1/2" grip done in a blunt cigar profile. Aluminum downlocking screwlock seat. The rod packs into a green cloth bag which is designed for a one tip rod however I suspect it is not original as it is several inches too long. The Orvis tube fits the rod perfectly but has a data sticker from another rod as it does not match.

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.
