Ron Kusse Baby Catskill Fly Rod 6’ 2/2 #1


A Ron Kusse Baby Catskill bamboo fly rod, 6', 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #1 line. The hang tag states that this is a prototype with a weight of approximately 1 ounce (my scale has it a touch closer to 1.5). Mint uncast condition. Slower action. Wheatstraw color cane done in a three up node pattern configuration. Excellent varnish. The main wraps are light yellow with red edges a the keeper, ferrule, and tip tops. A snake guide is used to replace the stripper like the Leonard Catskill series. The ferrules are a very small truncated variety. The grip is 4" long and shaped to a blunt cigar profile. The cap and ring seat has a flatted and varnished butternut spacer. The butt cap is stamped "Kusse, Maker" in a cartouche. The rod packs into the original yellow poplin bag with a stiffener and brass topped tube.

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.

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.
