CHARLES JENKINS 7' 6"  BAMBOO FLY ROD...$750 SOLD

This early Jenkins rod weighs 3 1/2 ounces and has a 13/64" ferrule. Recently restored by Steve Blake. One tip is 1/4" short, probably from a ferrule re-set, and the other has a 1/4" clear wrap between the last guide and the tip-top. Features slide band reel seat over hardwood, Garrison style grip, no hook keeper, clear silk wraps, Mildrum stripper, bright snakes, shop built step down ferrule, original bag and labeled tube. The serial number is GA-75-5, which I interpret as a Garrison taper, 7' 6", and the fifth rod built with this configuration. Very nice action with a 5wt.
