For sale here is a Paul H. Young "Perfectionist" bamboo fly rod - 7'6" 2/3 4-5wt. Serial no. 4264. Made in 1966. The rod is in excellent+ restored condition having been fished sparsely since restoration. It is unknown who performed the restoration though certainly a fine job. The rod includes a third tip presumably made at the time of restoration. One of the original tips is down 4". All other sections are full length and straight.
The rod features handsome mottle-flamed cane. A look that draws so many to Mr. Young's rods. Transparent caramel wraps with oxidized guides and ferrules. Garrison-style hook keeper. Reverse half wells grip 6 3/8" in length with mild soiling. Up-locking aluminum reel seat over a cork spacer with an aluminum "button" butt cap. The grip and reel seat were both replaced during the restoration. The Swiss-style ferrules have a perfect fit, nice and snug. The rod weighs in at 3.10 oz. with a swift, responsive medium-fast dry-fly action. Truly, a pleasure to cast. One of the best models ever made by the Paul H. Young Co. Grab it here for a great price.
Includes replacement bag and original tube.
