For sale here is a Paul H. Young Perfectionist -- 7'6" 2/2 4-5wt bamboo fly rod. Serial no. 4202. Made by Bob Summers. The rod is in excellent+ and original condition. The one issue being that one guide wrap is beginning to crack and will require a dap of varnish to secure it for years to come. The guide is located on one of the tips, second guide up from the ferrule. All sections are full length, straight and have never been repaired.
The rod features the signature PHY mottle-flamed look that appeals to so many. Deep golden/copper wraps blend well for an understated look. Blued guides. Carbide stripping guide. The script, in Bob Summers' hand, remains clean and bold. It reads,
"A Paul H. Young Co. Rod" and two flats down, "Perfectionist 7'6" 2.95 oz."
Garrison style hook keeper. E.C. Powell-style grip only lightly soiled and quite smooth. Black aluminum dual sliding band reel seat with a cork spacer. The Super-Z ferrules are size 12/64 with a perfect fit. The parabolic action is medium-fast. Authoritative with excellent recovery. The rod weighs in at a lean 2.95 oz.

The tube is housed in a canvas cover for protection.
