Orvis Superfine ~ 6.5’ ~ 2pc. ~ 1oz.~ 2wt. ~ EXC ~ This quality full flex light-line rod with an 0797 manufacture date features an attractive dark slate gray unsanded blank, brown wraps, comfortable superfine grip, cork seat with thin black dual slide band hardware. It comes with original gag, and Orvis-labeled green cordura-covered tube. From the maker: “When stalking native brook trout in their lair, a short, malleable rod is key. Boasting the beloved delicacy and presentation capabilities of the Superfine series, this rod is made for mountain streams and close quarters. With the Full-Flex, you'll feel every head shake that six-inch brookie offers.” $195

SOLD Fenwick Model FF755 ~ 7.5’ ~ 2pc ~ 3oz. ~ 5wt. ~ Serial No. P231905 ~ EXC ~ This sweet casting glass rod from Fenwick features a brown blank, brown wraps tipped white, comfortable perfection grip and comes with a new bag and Fenwick's 'No Roll' triangle tube. The rod has a crisp medium action that I liked best with a Cortland 444 Peach WF-5 line. This popular model is a nice find for the Fenwick enthusiast.

Phillipson Royal Model RF76 ~ 7.5’ ~ 2 pc. ~ 3 ½ oz. ~ HDH-HCF #6. EXC+ ~ This Rocky Mountain classic features brown blanks, burgundy silks with light brown accent wraps, mildrum stripper, Aetna foul-proof snakes, and smooth and tight-fitting N/S ferrules that give a nice pop when separated. The business end of the butt section is fitted with a comfortable straight grip with tapered nose, bronze-brown D/L’ing screw and slide hood ‘no rock’ aluminum seat, cone-shaped WC, and HK loop. The set comes with the original bag and Phillipson-labeled tube. I found the rod has an affinity for a Cortland 444 Peach DT-5, but will easily handle a 6 if called upon to do so. This is a really nice find for the Phillipson aficionado and/or any glass rod enthusiast.$250 WINTER SALE $195
