For sale here is a very stunning Edwards Perfection Series bamboo rod made by Bill Abrams (Streamer) of Housatonic Rods -- 7'6" 3/2 for a 4-5 weight line. Made in 2010 this was number 1 of 2 rods made in the series that year. The rod is in excellent++ condition.
Darkly tempered cane with pale gold wraps and purple tipping. Agate stripping guide. Ring hook keeper. Sculpted wood winding check made to look like bakelite. The cigar grip measures 4 3/4" in length with only the lightest soiling. Nickel silver cap and ring reel seat over a beautifully figured wood spacer. Wood butt cap, again made to look like bakelite. The ferrule fit is nice and tight as it should be. Indented witness marks. The ferrules could use a light polishing but the patina is greatly preferred by many. The rod weighs 3 3/4 oz. with a crisp and progressive medium-fast dry-fly action. Includes the original bag and labeled tube. The brass cap is engraved with the same information found on the reel seat.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire one of these rods on the secondary market. These are true masterpieces that pay great homage to the Edwards legacy.
