A nice Ted Simroe fly rod, 8'6", 3-piece, 2-tip built for what feels to me like a #6 line. Serial #688. A very nicely done rod from one of the Leonard captains. The rod shows very modest use with light grip soiling. Medium fast action. Honey blond cane with 3 up node pattern. Light yellow wraps with cinnamon edges. Chrome stripping guide, snake guides, and tip tops. Polished swiss-style ferrules. "T. W. Simroe--Maker" is lettered 3 flats right, and 4 flats right "3865 #688". The 688 serial number is also lettered at the male ferrules. The keeper is 1 flat right. The grip is 13 corks, 12 1/2" long in a modified western style. There is a hidden pocket cap at the heel of the grip. The spacer wood is a well-varnished burl. A polished aluminum up-locking screw lock finishes the seat. Comes with the original light olive bag and aluminum tube painted brown with heavy brass collar and tube.
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.
