Phillipson Premium Model Fly Rod 8'6" 3/2 #6


A nice Phillipson “Premium" model “Dry Fly Special” bamboo fly rod, 8’6”, 3-piece, 2-tip, and weighing 5 ½ oz. Feels like it should throw a #6 line well. This rod was made in 1952-3, and was Phillipson’s top of the line rod, first introduced 1947-8. It has the oft-seen elliptical grip and the black anodized down locking reel seat. It carries their bright nickel silver ferrules, all of which fit snugly, and all sections are almost dead straight. The rod has obviously seen very little use, as the varnish is nearly blemish free. It comes in the correct burnt orange cloth bag and the square aluminum case with the “Phillipson” decal in place. This “top grade” model was only made for six years, and this one is in excellent condition.

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.
