Sold Out $2,950.00 US
For sale here is a Jim Hidy hollowbuilt bamboo rod. Eight feet four inches in length, two sections with two tips, made for a four-weight fly line. This one is a recent build and remains in near mint condition. This rod features "bookmatched" tips! Nickel silver truncated ferrules, oxidized fittings, and cap and ring reel seat. Burnt orange silks with black tipping at the keeper, ferrules, and tip tops. Extremely smooth and balanced progressive action, casts very well with very little line out and holds plenty of reserve power for longer casts. Overall medium fast action and flexes well into the butt section. Suitable for all types of fly fishing -- dries, wets, and small streamers. A great roll-caster also! The rod weighs 3 1/2 oz.
Jim's rods are hand planed, hollow built into the tips, and exhibit some of the best cane work of any rod being made today. Jim's tapers have been tested and tweaked over the years as he states, "in laboratory conditions" at the casting ponds of the Golden Gate Angling and Casting Club. He hand turns his high-quality hardware fittings. His tapers and resulting rod actions are amongst the most coveted by fishermen worldwide.
Mr. Hidy's rods are rarely seen on the secondary market. Ordering a new rod entails a very long wait time, so don't let this one get away!
