A lightly used Ted Simroe fly rod, 8', 3-piece, 2-tip, built for what feels to me like a #4 line (and I've listed it as such). Serial #680A. This is a medium action rod. Lightly used, about 90% mint. Blonde bamboo in a three up node pattern construction. Light yellow or tan wraps with green edges. The edges are wrapped fore and aft at the keeper, ferrules, and tip tops. Chrome stripper, guides, and tip tops. All the rod hardware is polished. Ferrules are super z style. Very nice varnish. "T Simroe--Maker" is lettered on the reverse of the wrap flat. "3804 #680" is lettered 2 flats left. The keeper is one flat right. The grip is a blunt western profile, 6" long with 12 corks. Very little grip soiling. There is a hidden pocket cap under the heel of the grip. The reel seat is a polished aluminum up lock screw lock, with a nice target turned into the bottom cap. The wood spacer is nicely varnished mahogany or spanish cedar. The rod bag is a gray olive color and the rod tube is painted brown with a heavy brass collar and top.
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.
