Pezon et Michel "Fario Club" Bamboo Fly Rod -- 8'5 2/2 5-6wt

For sale here is a Pezon et Michel Super Parabolic PPP Fario Club bamboo rod. 2.57 metres, or 8'5" for a 5 or 6 weight line. Made in France. Two sections with two tips, one of which is a replacement from another Fario rod (tip taper measurements are the same). Staggered ferrule set up with original 7 1/2" bamboo plug, a classic characteristic of staggered most P&M rods. The rod is in very good+ condition. The varnish on the wraps has become somewhat brittle with time and will need attention at some point. All guides are secure. There are slight fishing sets in both tips. Emerald green wraps tipped red, typical for Pezon. Blued ferrules with red witness marks on the shoulder. Ferrule fit is perfect. Pezon et Michel made their ferrules on a taper to account for wear over time. U-shaped hook keeper. Ritz style grip with a slight flair towards the rear. The grip is soiled and has a slight chip at the bottom. Anodized aluminum up-locking reel seat. Note, this is a French made P&M, not a Sharpe's or Farlow's rod built on a P&M blank. However, the inked serial number above the grip of "2222" makes no sense to us. Includes original red satin bag. Replacement tube.

Due to the oddities of this rod, someone will be very happy given the price for an excellent and very popular P&M model! A great fishing rod.
