Paul Young Modified Para 18 Bamboo Rod


For sale here is a very special Paul Young rod, a modified Parabolic 18 from the late Mr. Young's personal rod arsenal. Made in 1949. Amazingly flamed cane, nickel silver ferrules, cork screwlock seat, lemon wraps, excellent varnish. The rod was sold by Marty Keane back in 2002 to my customer. The rod has a very interesting and possibly unique feature in that the grip and the fighting butt are both detachable. This 9'10" rod (without 5" fighting butt) would be an excellent one to fish with from a canoe, casting overhand or perhaps spey style as well. Comes with original bag and tube with Marty's label. The rod weighs nearly 7 1/2 oz. One of the guide feet has come out from under the silk wrap and needs to be re-secured. Don't miss out on adding this unique Paul Young rod to your collection!

Your shipping estimate will be calculated at checkout and if you have any questions please contact us. Please note the buyers are responsible for any applicable import duties or fees that may levied. Due to the importance of packing items carefully please allow up to two weeks for arrival (depending on how busy we are) though we certainly do our best to get items to you as expeditiously as possible.
