Peterson, Erik - Linnea Rod Company 7'7 4wt

For sale here is a Linnea Model 774-3D hollow-built bamboo rod by Erik Peterson. 7'7" for a 4 weight line. The rod has three sections and one tip (made that way). All sections remain straight as an arrow. Stunning cherry plum reel seat spacer. Here's Erik's description of this model: "The Dalles Rod and Gun Club is a located on the Deschutes River in Oregon.  Every Spring I visit the club with my friends Clint Bailey and James Harrington and we have the first opportunity of the year to field test the rods that I designed the previous winter.  The waters adjacent to the club are lined with large Alders and when the bugs are emerging, the rainbows stack up along the banks and under the trees to feed.  To catch these fish an angler must use stealth to approach and once in position, he must make precise casts to be effective.  Like the river, the Redsides Rainbows are large and powerful. I designed the 774-3 with these circumstances and conditions in mind.  The rod is medium fast with the power to turn large fish and very accurate in its casting characteristics with the ability to deliver flies on a dime.  Its tip tapers to .054 to protect fine tippets and with its length, the 774-3 is perfect for fishing the somewhat confined areas that are presented to the Deschutes angler."

The rod remains in near mint condition. The rod only weighs 2.95 ounces. Original bag and labeled tube.
