Orvis Wes Jordan Bamboo Fly Rod 8'6" 2/2 #9


A nice Orvis Wes Jordan model bamboo fly rod, 8'6", 2-piece, 2-tips, and built for a #9 line. Impregnated model, built in 1971. Three up node pattern construction with medium chestnut cane. Powerful medium full flexing action. Excellent used condition with just a bit of hand soiling to the grip, but the rod is nice and straight (the only real issue I could find is that the bottom of the reel seat pocket cap has had the end disc pop out and is no longer there. This should be fixable by having a competent rodmaker replace it). Serial number "64314" inked at the top of the butt near the ferrule and near the male ferrules on both tips. Wrapped brown. Mildrum stripping guide and the rod has a hook keeper. The oxidized ferrules are in excellent shape and retain all of their oxidation. Medium cigar grip 6 1/2" in length. Downlocking screwlock reel seat over a varnished wood spacer (with aforementioned missing disc on the pocket cap). The rod packs into a light tan poplin bag and a leather tube (the tube's main strap is in place but one of the smaller cross straps on the cap needs fixing).

Shipping Information
We ship at cost to the buyer and in the majority of cases do so via UPS with full insurance and signature. There are cheaper options but our experience has been that you get what you pay for and that it's not worth taking risks when shipping what are often one-of-a-kind items. 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.
Other Terms
Unless otherwise noted, all items come with a 3-day inspection period during which they can be returned to us for a full refund (provided that they are in the same condition in which they left our shop). Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. If an item is returned, we will issue a refund within 10 days upon receipt. Refunds will be either administered by providing a check or, when possible, by canceling a credit card purchase.
