Sweetgrass Fly Rod 8' 2/2 #5 (Octagonal Construction)

SKU: VFT4678

For sale here is a very scarce Sweetgrass "Octi" bamboo rod made by Glenn Brackett. Glenn made very few of these rods, constructed using eight strips of bamboo rather than the typical six. The rods were made from start to finish by Glenn. Hollow fluted. This one is a 8' two piece rod with two tips for a five weight line. Mint condition with original bag and tube! Full-flexing action (you can even feel it into the grip). Very powerful with amazing pinpoint accuracy! The original owner's name is on the rod. Labeled as 3 3/4 oz. These rods were originally sold for $3,900. Surely a must-have rod for Glenn Brackett devotees!

In 2013, Michael Mauri won the Hardy Cup with an eight-sided Sweetgrass rod. See story here.
