An excellent RL Winston fly rod, 7'6" 3-piece, 2-tip model built for a #4 line. Serial #3064. This rod has a pleasant medium action. It's used but very well cared for. The western style grip has some soiling but otherwise I probably would have called this rod mint. The ferrules are good and tight and all rod sections are straight. 3 up node pattern construction. As with all Winston rods of this period, it exhibits superior "build quality" - perfect varnish, great looking blemish-free cane, and close attention to all of the details. The western style grip has two tiny chips missing from the back. The (maple?) birdseye reel seat is lightly flatted and features a pocket cap and ring. "R.L.Winston, rod co" stamped on the bottom of the cap. Chrome guides and agate stripper, original bag and brown crackle painted tube with gold anodized collar and tube cap. A very nice example of the high level of workmanship from what many consider to be the high water mark for Winston.
