Walt Carpenter Browntone Fly Rod 7'3" 2/2 #4

SKU: 252


  • An excellent Walt Carpenter Browntone fly rod, 7'3" 2-piece, 2-tip for a #4 line. This is a mint unfished browntone with a nice medium action. It was possibly lawn cast but I see no evidence of fishing use. Flamed cane in 3 up node pattern. Wrapped brown with black edges and bronze guides. Superb varnish job. The keeper wrap is edged with black, tan, and maroon. Oxidized step ferrules and a cap and ring seat. The cap is stamped "W.E. Carpenter, maker" in the cartouche. Varnished walnut slide band seat. 12 cork slim cigar seat. Serial #89773 inscribed at the base of both tips and at the top of the butt near the step ferrule. Original bag and tube. A very nice rod here, it would be difficult to find a better example of Walt's work.
