RD Taylor Fly Rod 6'10" 2/2 #3


A nice RD Taylor fly rod, 6'10", 2-piece, 2-tip, built for a #3 line. A semi parabolic rod with a medium-slow full-flexing action. Used but very good condition. The grip has a good amount of hand soiling but the ferrule fits are excellent and I can find no problems in the varnish. Tan colored cane in a 2 up node pattern. Mildrum carbide stripper and snake guides are wrapped brown-gold with red edges at the keeper and male ferrules. The step ferrules and hardware are bright. "239-114" is lettered on the wrap flat. The keeper is one flat right. The grip is a 5" cigar. I think the cap and ring reel seat wood is made from apple. As always Bob's hand-turned seat hardware is lovely to behold. The cap is stamped "R.D. Taylor, maker" in the cartouche. The cap and ring could use a little hand polish to get rid of a slight film of oxidation. The rod comes packed in a tan poplin bag and a brushed aluminum tube with brass top, collar, and bottom. 

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.
