RD Taylor Fly Rod 7'6" 2/2 #4


An excellent RD Taylor fly rod, 7'6", 2-piece, 2-tip, built for a #4 line. Serial #25-4-133. Medium action. Appears lawn cast only. The grip and seat are spotless with the faintest spot of brassing to the guides being the only sign of use. Flamed cane in 2 opposed node pattern. Very good varnish. Light tan wraps with red edges, an extra band of black at the keeper and male ferrules. Carbide stripper and black snake guides.  Oxidized hand-turned step ferrules. The 11 cork 5 1/2" medium cigar grip is clean as a whistle. Nicely varnished walnut cap and ring seat.  The hand-turned cap and ring hardware is a joy to look at. The oxidized cap is stamped "R.D. Taylor, Maker" in the cartouche. Packed in a tan colored cloth bag and brushed aluminum tube with brass bottom, collar, and top.  About as nice a Taylor rod as you will find anywhere.

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.
