This is a Marc Aroner Spring Creek 7' 6" three-piece, two-tip for a 5-weight line weighing 4.0 oz. Marc's work is impeccable. Marc built this with an even bend throughout the rod, making it a moderate action like the other weights in the Spring Creek lineup. This rod has been handled with care and treated respectfully. This is in as close to new condition as a rod can be for having been fished.
This is an all original Dickerson 861711-D which is an 8' 6" 3-piece for a 6-weight line weighing 4.60 oz. It's rare to find a Dickerson from 1937 in original condition. This has a dry and wet fly tip. All sections are full-length and straight....
The smallest and lightest of the Charlton Reels, the 8350 has long been a favorite of trout fishermen. This is in new condition and has never been lined. It is loaded with a 1/5 (3-5 wt line) spool.
This is a rare pre-fire Leonard Appalachian in all original condition. The Appalachian is an 8' 0" four-piece. In my hand, the action is a pleasant medium flexing into the lower ferrule – not what I expected from a four-piece rod.
The Gallas' P93 is a 7' 9" two-piece for a 5-weight line weighing 4.10 oz. The all cork grip has a wood reel seat check that transitions to the down-locking aluminum hardware – a handsome detail. The ferrule is size 15 with a perfect fit.
This consists of Delrin side plates, a naval brass (aka Admiralty Bronze) shaft and click assembly and an ebonite knob. Pillar to pillar the reel measures 3", the diameter of the rims is 2 1/2", the spool width is 1". The reel weighs 5.10 oz.
Edwards Quadrate #40 bamboo fly rod. This is a 7’ 0” two-piece for a 5wt line weighing 3.30 oz. The ferrule is size 12 with a perfect fit. In my hand, the action is on the fast side with a strong dry-fly demeanor.
This rod consists of Walt Carpenter's 'Browntone' tempering – a rich walnut toning blending into golden-colored nodes. The hard tungsten wire guides are wrapped with a rich mahogany brown, finely tipped with black.
