For sale here is a Ron Kusse "Beaverkill" 7'6" 5wt 3/2 bamboo rod. The rod is in excellent plus overall condition. The rod doesn't appear to have ever been fished, but somewhere in transport or handling, a slight splintering of the cane became apparent just above the male ferrule on one of the tips. The repair of this minor issue was performed by Mike Clark at South Creek Ltd. The rod is darkly flamed and stunning in appearance. The chestnut brown silks contrast and compliment nicely the light/dark flaming pattern. Red and black tipping at the winding check, ferrules and tip-tops. Swelled butt. Cigar grip 5" in length. Blued nickel silver sliding band reel seat over Walnut. "Ron Kusse Maker" engraved in butt cap. Oxidized micro ferrules and oxidized guides. Ferrule fit is excellent. On the fast side of medium-fast dry fly action. The 3-piece configuration makes this rod very easily transportable. Rod weighs 3.95 oz. Ferrule size 10/64 and 16/64. Comes with original bag with Kusse hanging tag and original tube with engraved brass cap. Serial number 9821.
