Paul Young Martha Marie Bamboo Fly Rod 7'6" 2/2


A Paul H Young Martha Marie bamboo fly rod, 7'6", 2-piece, 2-tips. Serial #4632. The rod weighs 3.9 ounces. 1974 manufacture date. Fair condition due to corrosion on the male slides and to the snake guides and tip tops (unfortunately I couldn't put the rod together to evaluate the action). The butt and one tip are glued with resorcinol glue and the other may be a later replacement as the seams are white rather than black. The cane is flamed and the node pattern is two opposed. The wraps are a copper color with a stripping guide and black snake guides. The rod appears to have been left out on a bench while the garage was painted as there are several dots of red and blue paint here and there. The grip is 5 3/4" long and turned to a half wells. The reel seat is a black anodized downlocking screwlock with the cork spacer and aluminum pocket cap (also black anodized). The pocket cap is stamped "Paul H Young Co, Detroit - Mich" in a square cartouche. The rod bag is a maroon silk-like material. The rod tube is all aluminum with a gold anodized collar. A good candidate here for a little refurbishment to bring it back up to par as a good fishable Martha Marie.

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.

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).
