Wright & McGill Granger Aristocrat Model 7030 Bamboo Rod


For sale here is a quite scarce Wright & McGill Granger Aristocrat Model 7030. 7' 2/2 4wt bamboo rod. The rod is in excellent original condition, though there are a few scratches and small chips in the varnish and one tip has been given a varnish overcoat. All sections are full-length and straight. Classic Granger ammoniated cane, bronze colored silks with dark brown tipping. Handsomely swelled butt. The rod retains the original hammer handle grip, though it displays some slight ridging. The patented nickel silver up-locking reel seat is in wonderful condition and functions smoothly and properly. The ferrules are size 11/64, the fit is perfect. The rod weighs 3 7/8 oz. The action is a superb medium-fast. A perfect small stream rod from the golden age of bamboo. Includes original bag and tube sans label. Interestingly, the bag features a stamp from the original retailer, Tochterman's. The stamp reads, " TOCHTERMAN'S - TACKLE - FIREARMS - LIVE BAIT - 1928-5 EASTERN AVE. - *illegible*". Located in Baltimore, MD, Tochterman's was opened in 1916 and celebrated its 100th year in business as a tackle/fly shop last year.
