##x200B;##x200B;##x200B;##x200B;##x200B;##x200B;#x200B. Orvis Impregnated Battenkill Rocky Mountain Bamboo Fly Fishing Rod. Up for sale is a very nice Orvis Rocky Mountain 6 1/2 Bamboo Fly Rod. This rod##x2019;s serial number is "13506"; and according to the Orvis database this rod was built in 1952. This rod is in great shape and it is an extremely hard to find model.All of the sections are straight and are full length (measuring roughly 27 1/2 each). The butt section weighs 1.9oz; mid-section 0.5oz; and the tips weigh 0.3oz each. Unfortunately, most of the label on the rod has worn off (you can still see an outline of it when held near bright light; see photo). The cork handle is in nice shape but does show ridging. The reel seat looks great and shows very little wear.
One of the tips is missing the serial number (looks like it wore off as well). The ferrules fit tight on this rod; however, the butt-to-mid section ferrules and one of the tip section ferrules (the tip without the serial number) have no room for future wear. They still fit snug and the rod can be used as-is. The bluing on the ferrules looks superb.Ferrules##xA0;measure 13/64" and 9/64". This rod comes with the tube and sock (I believe they are both original; however, the tube does not have a label).
If you have any additional questions, please don##x2019;t hesitate to ask. See all photos and thank you for looking.
