RL Winston Fly Rod 7'9" 3/2 #4


A nice RL Winston bamboo rod, 7'9", 3-piece, 2-tip, built for a #4 line. Serial number 4295, just after the Brackett era. Medium fast action. The inscription on the rod shaft gives the weight as 3 ounces but my scale has it at 4.3. Mint condition, with no grip soiling or brassing to the inner guides. The cane color is a light wheatstraw in the three up node configuration. Wraps are light brown with maroon edges at the keeper, ferrules, and tip-tops. Banded agate stripper and black snake brand guides. The grip is 6 1/2" long and done in a full wells configuration. The reel seat is an uplocking screw lock of polished nickel silver with a hidden pocket cap. "RL Winston, Rod Co" printed on the end cap in an oval cartouche. Packs in the original bag with the Winston logo and a brown crackle aluminum tube with gold anodized top and collar and the Winston data sticker.

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.
