For sale here is a Paul Young "Texan" taper bamboo rod made by John Pickard. Model 867 (made with pre-embargo cane). 8 1/2 feet, 2/2 for a 6 or 7 weight line. The rod weighs 4.95 oz. Ferrule size is 17/64. Medium fast (almost fast) cannon! The rod is in excellent +++ condition showing only extremely light use. All sections are full length and straight. Comes with original bag and tube. This is an outstanding dry fly rod for large trout, bass, summer run steelies, or even bonefish and snook -- Martha Marie Young caught many with her PHY Texan!
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.
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.
