For your consideration is an E.W. Edwards bamboo fly rod. This an 8’ 0” 3/2 5wt rod. All sections are straight and full length.
Medium flame-tempered cane with warm crimson silks and golden caramel tipping. The red and golden color of the agate stripping guide is a beautiful balance between the cane and wraps. Circular tenite winding check. Don Schroeder masterfully refinished this rod replacing the 5” cork grip at the time. The ribbed sliding band with coin edged finish on all ribs is a handsome touch. The ferrules are size 10 and 15 with a firm fit but absent the pop. The rod weighs 4.00 oz. In my hand, the action is on the medium side of medium-fast and full working into the butt section. Original bag and tube.
This is a very nice all-round 5 weight rod for trout fishing.
