Further, I would classify this rod as being in Near-Mint condition. The rod comes with a cloth rod bag and brown aluminum tube with brass trim and a brass end cap. Both of these items are also in near-mint condition. All photos in this ad were taken by FlyMasters personnel and are of the actual rod listed in this ad. This is a Winston Bamboo 704-2/2, 4-weight, 2-piece 70 (2.13m) long fly rod with 2 tips.
It is serial number 3505 and each section of the rod is so marked in Winston fashion. The rod is light weight 2 5/8ozs (74.4g). The reel seat has a custom scrimshaw insert depicting a Bluegill (Pumpkinseed Sunfish) rising to a dragonfly (not pictured) and is up-locking.The end cap of the rod depicts a beautiful McGinty dry fly. The cork rod handle is made with a custom-made hammer handle shape. This rod defines classic beauty and is a one-of-a kind. This is among the last rods that Glenn Brackett and his team built while at Winston. This rod was constructed by Brackett.
The scrimshaw design and the end cap design were coordinated through Brackett at Winston. Originally there was a personalization on the rod that was professionally removed recently without a trace by Glenn Brackett. The rod was built for a customer of our shop in 2000. The rod was in his possession for many years until it was recently uncovered in Montana. Now it has come home to our shop where it is often displayed.This rod will make a very special gift for an important birthday, Christmas present, or on the occasion of a retirement. In addition, this may be just the item to reward yourself, if you have just hit a big lick and want to remember the occasion for a lifetime.
In addition we have a number of very nice reels which would complement this rod nicely. Length 7 0 (2.13m). Rod Pieces 2 with 2 Tip Sections.Rod Weight 2 5/8ozs (74.4g). Rod Tube Brown Aluminum with Brass Trim. Our mission at FlyMasters of Indianapolis is to provide the finest service, the best equipment, and world-class experience for the sport of fishing.
