South Creek Ltd Bamboo Rod 8' 3/2 #5

SKU: VFT12868

For sale here is a South Creek bamboo rod in excellent+ condition. It's a classic-looking SCL rod - 8 feet for a 5 weight. Three pieces and two tips (3/2). All original and full-length. Wraps and varnish are exquisite - chestnut wraps tipped black. Ferrule plugs included. Medium flamed cane. Rod was built in 2002 and not fished that much. All sections are straight. Medium fast action. The reel seat spacer has some very minor signs of use. I recently took the rod in to Mike for a "tune-up", which consisted of re-bluing the reel seat cap and ring, polishing the rod, ensuring all sections were dead straight and cleaning the cork grip. Before re-bluing the butt cap, he removed the prior owner's initials from the bottom of it. Now it's like new without the initials! Comes with original bag and tube with the original label in excellent condition. Here's a great chance to own a near perfect SCL rod without the multi-year wait.
