For your consideration is an Everett Garrison Model 212 bamboo fly rod. This rod is 8' 0", 2/2, for a 4 or 5-weight line weighing 3.85 oz. All sections are full length and straight.
This was masterfully rebuilt by Steve Blake. The cork grip was replaced but all bamboo and components are original to the rod. Serial number C-8-5 dates Garrison's work to either 1933 or 1959. The guides, sliding band, and ferrules indicate this to be built in 1933. This rod is finished with transparent honey wraps with chestnut wraps at the ferrules and winding check. In my hand, this rod is on the medium side of medium-fast and glorious to cast. Picking up the line off the water is felt throughout the rod. Original tube and bag.
Payment by check, bank check, or money order preferred. If a credit card or PayPal is used, the buyer will be assessed a 3% fee.
