RL Winston Bamboo Fly Rod 7' 3/2 #3


A nice RL Winston bamboo fly rod, 7', 3-piece, 2-tip, built for a #3 line. Serial number 3687, a Brackett era rod. Listed on the rod shaft as 2 3/4 ounces but my scale has it closer to 3.7. Mint condition. Medium full flexing action. The bamboo is oven tempered to a golden wheat straw color and is done in a three up node pattern. The varnish is stupendous, as good as the best of any I have seen. The wraps are tan with cinnamon edges at the keeper, ferrules, and tip-tops. Red agate stripper and bronze snake guides. All the sections are arrow straight and the ferrule fits are good. The grip is large for a 7' rod at 7" long and has a thumb rest carved into the full wells profile. Hidden pocket cap in the heel of the grip. The reel seat is a nickel silver uplocking screw lock with the Winston logo printed on the bottom cap. The rod packs in a white linen bag with the Winston logo stitched on the flat and a brown crackle painted aluminum tube with gold anodized hardware. The Winston sticker is nicely affixed to the tube as well.

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.
