RL Winston Bamboo Fly Rod 8'9" 2/1 #7


An RL Winston bamboo fly rod, 8'9", 2-piece, 1-tip, built for a #7 line. Serial #1103. 4.4 ounces. San Francisco era rod. The butt is 1 1/2" shorter than the tip, so the total length when put together is 8' 7 1/2". The conclusion is that the ferrule broke off and was re-done at the factory leaving the butt short. Used fair condition with some varnish scrapes and chips. One hook dig behind the lettering. The original owners' name is inked on the butt section in the usual place. Tan colored cane done in a three up node pattern. Tan wraps with cinnamon edges at the keeper, ferrules, and tip-tops. The grip is 6" long and turned to a full wells profile. The reel seat is a downlocking screwlock with a pocket cap of aluminum. The spacer looks like an artificial wood with the threads cut into the wood. The rod is packed in a one-tip grey cloth bag and the original tube.  The tube label is about 75% intact. Unfortunately the tube collar has been driven on too far and the top has no room to thread on.

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.
