For sale here is a very special Phillipson impregnated bamboo rod - Dry Fly Special - 8'6" 3/2 for a 6wt line. Dark impregnated cane, beautiful and classic Phillipson wraps - henna brown tipped with yellow spiral wraps. Cigar cork grip with Phillipson bronze anodized aluminum reel seat.
The nickel silver ferrules are size 12/64 and 18/64 and fit together nicely. The rod is in near mint original condition. Strong medium fast action with a lot of backbone. The rod weighs 5.3 oz. Comes with original bag and labeled tube in very fine condition. A great Western rod capable of throwing big nasties and handling big fish, yet it also presents small dries very effectively!
Also included is an alternate all cork reel seat with cap and ring and smaller cigar grip that the mid section ferrule fits into. This configuration (the grip, mid, and tip) weighs 3.8 oz. and results in a 6'3" midge rod with fast action for a five or six weight line.
A rarely seen combination rod (two rods for the price of one!) in one of Phillipson's most popular tapers! Don't let this one get away!
