R.L. Winston Bamboo Rod (Morgan-Era) 7'6" 2/2 #4/5


For sale here we have a Tom Morgan-era  R.L. Winston 7'6 2/2 4-5wt bamboo fly rod made in Twin Bridges, MT in 1978. Serial #1713. The rod includes the original receipt signed by Tom Morgan himself (see pictures). Marked 3 oz. The rod is in excellent+ original condition and appears to have been fished very little. All sections are full length and straight. 

The rod features pumpkin-toned cane with honey wraps and burgundy tipping at the winding check, signature wrap, ferrules, and tip-tops. Bright guides. Ring hookkeeper. The reverse half wells grip measures 6" in length with moderate soiling. Bright nickel silver cap and ring reel seat over a mortised cork spacer. The rod weighs in at a lean 3.30 oz. The action is a wonderfully crisp and smooth medium-fast dry-fly. Capable of the utmost finesse while still retaining backbone in the butt for bigger fish and gusty winds. Includes original San-Fran bag and Twin Bridges tube. The rod was built shortly after the move to Montana and the leftover stock was still being used. 

Don't miss out on this terrific example of a Tom Morgan-era Winston with included provenance; not to mention a very fine trout rod.
