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


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.

Shipping Information

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.
Other Terms
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.
