For sale here is a scarce Paul H. Young "Midge" bamboo fly rod. 6'3" with two sections and two tips for a four weight line. Serial no. 4252 made in 1966 by Bob Summers. The rod is in excellent plus and original condition. All sections are full length and straight. The rod is mottle-flamed with bronze colored wraps. Oxidized guides. The script remains clean and bold and reads "Midge 6'3" 1 3/4 oz." on one flat, and "A Paul H. Young Co. Rod" on another. Petite cigar grip 5 1/4" in length with very light soiling. Dual black aluminum ring reel seat over a mortised cork spacer. The rod features truncated swiss-style ferrules with an excellent fit. The rods actual weight is 2.05 oz. The action is parabolic and on the fast side of medium-fast. The original satin-like rod bag is in perfect condition, a rarity in itself as usually these satin bags deteriorated quite noticeably with moderate use and age. The original Champion-style tube in great condition also.
