Peterson, Erik - Linnea Rod Company 8'1 4wt

For sale here is a Linnea Model 814-3 hollow-built bamboo rod by Erik Peterson. 8'1" for a 4 weight line. The rod has three sections and four tips! Here's Erik's description of this model: "There are many views on three piece rod design in terms of the effect that ferrules have on rod action.  From my perspective, when properly designed, the placement of ferrules on a three piece rod has a tendency to smooth out the casting characteristics, make the action feel crisp and eliminate the “pulling” effect that a second ferrule can otherwise have.  The 814-3 achieves a continuity of action by the manipulation of the dimensions both in the rod taper and hollow cutting in the portions of the rod that transition from bamboo to the ferrule.  The resulting rod is crisp and fluid.  The 814-3 is designed for fishing sized medium spring creek waters."

The rod has been fished sparingly and remains in excellent plus condition. Three of the tips have slight fishing sets but these can be remedied easily. Medium fast action. The rod only weighs 3 1/8 ounces. Original five-compartment bag and original labeled tube.
