RL Winston Bamboo Fly Rod 5'10" 2/1 #3/4


A RL Winston bamboo fly rod, 5'10", 2-piece, 1-tip, built for a #3 or #4 line. Serial #1372. 2 ounces. Used with considerable hand soiling on the grip but the varnish is in great condition. Full flexing action. Dark wheatstraw color cane in a three up node pattern. Tan wraps with maroon edges at the keeper, ferrules, and tip-tops. The stripping guide is carbide and the snakes are chrome. The owner's name is inscribed on the rod as well as other data. The grip is 5" long in half wells profile. The seat is mortised cork with an aluminum ring and pocket cap. The rod cloth bag has a butt pocket and only one tip pocket. The rod tube is aluminum with a green plastic top on a chain and has the San Francisco address for Winston. However the tube is oversized for this rod and could not be original.

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.
