RK Bolt Bamboo Fly Rod 8'2" 2/2 #4


A nice RK Bolt bamboo fly rod, 8'2", 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for what feels to me like a #4 line. This is one of Robert's recently developed Guide models. Serial #2206. The rod weighs 4.1 ounces on my scale. Pleasant medium full flexing action. The rod appears to be mint or perhaps lawn cast only at most. I could find no meaningful signs of use. The rod is nice and straight. Medium wheatstraw colored cane done in a two-opposed node configuration. Nice varnish. The rod is wrapped in the characteristic brown/yellow Howells combination with the ferrules overwrapped as well. The rod sports a hook keeper and a carbide stripper, with chrome snakes and tip tops. The female ferrule has Bob's makers mark stamped on the welt and comes with knurled brass-and-cork ferrule plug. The 5 1/2" grip is shaped to a western profile. The reel seat is an aluminum downlocking screwlock over a handsome piece of mortised and varnished zebrawood. The cap has a stamp depicting a cross section of fluted hollow rod section. The rod packs into an orange bag and an aluminum tube with gold-anodized aluminum fittings as well as the data sticker affixed to the outside. 

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.
