Robert Bolt Bamboo Fly Rod 8' 3/2 #5


A nice Robert Bolt bamboo fly rod, 8', 3-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #5 line. Serial #1007. The rod weighs 4.1 ounces on my scale. Mint, unused condition. Nice DF action, quick but not too quick. Oven tempered cane that's a chestnut color, and done in a two opposed node pattern. Brown main wraps with yellow edges on all, with one band of red at the keeper. Carbide stripper and chrome snake guides. The ferrules are overwrapped to the welt and the welts have a tiny "RK Bolt" roller die. The rod comes with brass and cork ferrule plugs. The varnish is superb. This rod was built in 2010 and hollow built through the butt and mid. The grip is 6" long and turned to a western profile with a hidden pocket cap. The uplocking screwlock seat spacer is a perfectly varnished quarter-sawn piece of zebra wood. The polished aluminum screwlock is stamped "RK Bolt, Maker" and the bottom is nicely radiused. The cloth rod bag is maroon and the aluminum tube has Bob's data sticker and a cloth protective overbag.

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.

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.
