Paul Young Midge Bamboo Fly Rod 6'3" 2/2 #4


A Paul Young Midge bamboo fly rod, 6'3", 2-piece, 2-tip, built for a #4 line. Serial #3974. Semi parabolic full flexing action. Fair used condition. The principal issues with the rod are that there are some untreated hook digs below the lowest guide on the wrap flat of the butt section. Also, the snake guides and tip tops are corroded. The cane is flamed and the node pattern is two opposed. The wraps are copper and the varnish is good. No stripper, but a snake guide instead. The rod may have been re-done by Bob Summers, but I can't say for sure. The ferrules are black anodized aluminum stepdown style. The grip is 4 1/2" long shaped to a small blunt cigar. The all-cork reel seat adds another 3 1/2" and is flatted for the reel foot and utilizes two black anodized rings. A cork flare at the base of the seat retains the slide rings. The rod bag is original and a copper colored silk-like material. All-aluminum rod tube with a gold anodized collar.

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.
