RL Winston Bamboo Fly Rod 7'6" 2/2 #4


An RL Winston San Francisco-era bamboo fly rod, 7'6", 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for what feels like a #4. Serial #1266. 2.9 ounces. Medium full flexing action. Good original condition. Shows some hand soiling to the grip but little sign of use otherwise. The cane is a wheatstraw color and the nodes are done in a three up pattern. The wraps are putty with burgundy edges at the keeper and ferrules. Carbide stripper and chrome snake guides. The grip is 5 1/2" long and styled to a half wells profile. The reel seat is mortised cork with an aluminum ring and pocket cap and a black (delrin?) bottom cap. The rod bag is red cloth with a sewn-on Winston San Francisco label. The rod tube has about 40% of the Winston label intact.

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.
