Takemoto Hollowbuilt Bamboo Rod - 8'4 3/2 5wt

For sale here is another amazing rod by Maseke Takemoto (Hollow T Construction). Model #0502 -- 8'4 for a 5wt line. The rod remains in mint condition having only been assembled and lawn cast (the marks on the male ferrules in the photos easily came off with a fingernail). Three piece with two tips. Glass ferrules. Exceptional cane work. Exquisite oil finish. Patent-pending single wire/single foot snake guides. Blued nickel silver cap and ring. Clear wraps tipped black. On the fast side of medium fast action. This rod has amazing reserve power in the butt section when called upon. An absolute pleasure to cast and weighs in at only 3 5/8 oz.

Take-san kindly donated this rod to the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum.
