For sale here is a Pflueger "King Bee" - 9'6" 7wt 3/2 bamboo rod. The rod is in very good++ original condition. The only issues preventing it from an excellent condition are that both female ferrules are clicking. This can easily be fixed though. There are also slight fishing sets in both tips. Honey toned cane with black and white jasper silks though the aging of the varnish has made them more of a gold and black. Light purple tipping. Varnish is in excellent shape. Lovely swelled butt. The fully intact script is written in yellow, reminiscent of Edwards rods. Full Wells grip is lightly soiled. No ridging or major chips. Aluminum down-locking reel seat with a black bakelite spacer. The Pflueger "Bulldog" impression appears on the bakelite spacer. Ferrule sizes 18/64 and 11/64, the fit is great. The action of the rod is medium fast, reflective of the style of the day. Weight 6.15 oz. Rod comes in a replacement aluminum tube and Heddon bag made of brown velvet with burgundy edges. It's quite the bag.
This rod is a must have for the Pflueger collector, it would look very nice as a display piece or fish it as a light salmon or bass rod. The King Bee was the top of the line rod for Pflueger. Most likely made by Montague, it rivaled their best rods.
