For your consideration is an Orvis Superfine bamboo fly rod built in 1967. This is a 7' 6" two-piece for a 5-weight line weighing 3.0 oz. (label and butt section reads 3.25 oz). Marked for an HDG (6) weight line, most prefer Orvis’ rods with one line down from the specified designation. All sections are full-length and straight.
This rod consists of the indicative Orvis-impregnated dark cane with red-brown wraps. The 4 3/4" grip has minor ridging and appears to have been cleaned at one point. The ferrule is size 12 with a perfect fit. In my hand, the action is on the fast side of medium fast. The male ferrule on one tip appears to have possibly been reblued as it is a darker color. Includes the original bag and tube. The Superfine is a very desirable Orvis model.
