Young, Colin - 7' 3wt Bamboo Fly Rod

For sale here is a Colin Young 7' 3wt 2/1 bamboo rod. Mr. Young was was employed by Partridge of Redditch, Farlow's of London, and Caudle and Rivas at various times in his storied career. The rod is in excellent plus condition. The tip is 1/2" short but made that way. Impregnated finish. Tempered cane with deep cinnamon colored wraps. Blued guides and hook keeper. Beautiful swelled butt. Western style grip in excellent condition. Nickel silver sliding band reel seat over a fine wood spacer. Super Z style ferrules size 11/64. Ferrule fit is nice and tight. Medium-fast dry-fly action. Original bag and tube. This would make an excellent small stream or pocket water dry-fly rod. The rod weighs 3 1/2 oz. This could be a rod made from Mr. Young's blanks, but I can't be certain. Nice fishing rod for the money though!
