For sale here is a Chris McDowell bamboo rod - 7'6 3/2 4wt. Payne 198 taper weighing in at 3 3/4 oz. The flaming on this rod combined with the dark brown clear wraps, gorgeous spacer in the reel seat and blued ferrules and cap and ring hardware is simply stunning. Crisp medium fast action as well. A great travel rod for mountain fishing! It would look even better with a nicely leaded Hardy, Dingley, Farlow or Kineya attached to it!
