RD Taylor Bamboo Fly Rod 8'6" 3/2 #5


A nice RD Taylor fly rod, 8'6", 3-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #5 line. Serial #37-5-269. Weighs 4.9 ounces. Medium to medium slow action. Very light use. Just a hint of grip soiling and a bit of brassing to the inner part of the guides. Flamed cane in a two opposed node pattern. Excellent varnish with a perfection stripper and black snake guides. Very light brown main wraps with red edges and an extra edge of yellow and black at the keeper and male ferrules. The step ferrules retain 100% of their oxidation. The grip is a 6" medium cigar. The seat is a slide band and cap with "R.D. Taylor, Maker" stamp and Bob's unique hand-turned hardware. The smoothly varnished and flatted wood spacer is a walnut with smokey bands. The rod comes in a tan cloth bag and a brushed aluminum tube with brass fittings.

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.
