For sale here is a San Francisco-era R.L. Winston "Leetle Feller" bamboo rod - 6' 2/1 3wt -- 2 oz. Serial no. 9872. Mint original condition with the plastic still on the grip. Never fished. All sections are full length and straight. At the time all Leetle Fellers were built with one tip. Beige wraps with burgundy tipping at the winding check, signature wrap, ferrules, and tip-top.

Full-wells grip 5 1/4" in length. Bright aluminum cap and ring reel seat over a mortised cork spacer. The spacer does show a bit of wear from years of the band sliding on while the rod is moved around. Duronze ferrules size 11/64 with a perfect fit. The rods actual weight is 2.35 oz. Medium-fast action with a good bit of backbone considering its size. Includes replacement bag though it is a period correct Winston bag and the original tube with the label 75% remaining. The tube is housed in a fine canvas cover.
The 1977 Winston catalog describes the "Leetle Feller" as follows:
"They are designed to make short, very accurate casts on small streams where extreme care in line presentation is desired. The Leetle Fellers are well designed rods for serious anglers to fish #3 or #4 lines under 50'."
Don't miss out on this original, highly regarded classic Winston.
