Wright & McGill Granger Stream and Lake Bamboo Rod - Model 8642
For sale here is a Wright & McGill Granger Stream and Lake Bamboo Rod - Model 8642. 8 1/2 feet, three sections with one tip section. The other tip section was presumably lost or broken at some point. These rods were made in 1947-1948, its predecessor being the Granger Champion. These rods featured the patented uplocking reel seat and red nylon wraps with no tipping. This rod remains in very good ++ condition. The female ferrule on the butt section and the tip top were both reset and rewrapped by South Creek Ltd. after the glue simply lost its bond. No other repairs are evident and none are needed. The rod weighs 5 1/8 oz. Comes with original bag and non-original tube. The ferrule sizes are 17/64 and 11/64. The ferrule fit is good. This rod needs to go fishing again!
