Up for sale is a very nice Orvis Deluxe 6 1/2' long bamboo fly rod. Overall, this rod does show wear; however, it is still in very nice shape for its age.The cork handle shows most of the wear, but it still feels good in your hand (the handle is on the smaller side and it only measures around 7, from top-to-bottom). The ferrules on this rod fit tight, but they would benefit from some wax. Please note, on one of the tip ferrules, the cap on the bottom is missing (see photo). I would suggest replacing it or waterproofing the bottom of the ferrule. All sections are full length, but one of the tips has a small set.
The varnish looks great and all of the guide wrappings are complete (the tip guides show some wear). This rod holds the serial number "21250" and it is labeled on all sections; this rod was built in 1957. The tube and sock are included. The tube has some light scratch markings on it.
Despite the wear this rod shows, it would be great to fish with or collect. Please see all of the photos and thank you for looking.
