RK Bolt Bamboo Fly Rod 8'9" 2/2 #8


A nice RK Bolt bamboo fly rod, 8'9", 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #8 line. Serial #0806. The rod weighs 4.6 ounces on my scale. Medium, bordering on medium-slow, full flexing action. Lightly used, well-cared-for condition, with some soiling to the grip and reel foot impressions on the spacer. Medium wheatstraw colored cane done in a two-opposed node configuration. Nice varnish. The rod is wrapped in light brown/yellow combination with the ferrules overwrapped as well. The rod sports a hook keeper and a carbide stripper, with chrome snakes and tip tops. The female ferrule has Bob's makers mark stamped on the welt and comes with knurled brass-and-cork ferrule plug. The 6 1/2" grip is shaped to a full wells profile, though with taper at the top 1/2" where it comes down to the cane. The heel of the grip has a hidden pocket cap. The reel seat is an aluminum uplocking screwlock over a mortised and varnished wood spacer. The ring has Bob's makers mark stamped on it. The rod packs into an orange bag and an aluminum tube with gold-anodized aluminum fittings as well as the data sticker affixed to the outside.

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.
