For sale here is an R.W. Lancaster (Bob Lancaster) Boulder River 8'0" 4/2 5-6wt bamboo rod. Serial no. 58v84. The rod is in excellent original condition, all sections are full length and straight. 

Lancaster was greatly influenced by Paul H. Young's work. Handsome mottle-flamed tempering. Matte oil finish with chestnut brown wraps.

The upper ring has lost much of its bluing and the bottom band and butt-cap show wear. There are light dents in the spacer.
