For sale here is a Paul H. Young Perfectionist Model -- 7'6" 2/2 4-5wt bamboo fly rod. Serial no. 4677. Made in 1975 during the Bob Summers' era at the PHY Rod Co. The rod is in excellent+ original condition. All sections are full length and straight, free of any repairs. 

The rod features the signature PHY mottle-flamed look that appeals to so many. Chestnut colored wraps blend well for an understated look. Blued guides. Carbide stripping guide. The script, in Bob Summers' hand, remains clean and bold. It reads, First flat: "George J. Demchik   May 19, 1975" Second flat: A Paul H. Young Co. Rod  Third flat: Perfectionist 7'6" 2 1/2 oz.

Garrison style hook keeper. Cigar/Garrison-style grip 5 1/2" in length and only lightly soiled. Blued aluminum dual sliding band reel seat over a mortised cork spacer. The step-down ferrules are size 12/64 with a nice and tight fit, perfect. The parabolic action is medium-fast and the rod recovers very well.
