8' 1-Piece Bamboo Fly Rod, Gary Howells Blank...$2,300 SOLD

Gary Howells completed four one piece rods, three of these for himself. He also made 6 blanks for 8 foot one-piece rods which were unfinished at the time of this death. This one was wrapped and finished by Portland (OR) rod maker Ed Hartzell.

Provenience on this rod is available on request. The rod weighs 3 7/8 ounces and casts a 5wt line. One-piece bamboo flyrods offer a unique casting experience, since they have no ferrule to add weight or dampen the action. You really have to try this rod to believe it.

This rod cannot be shipped out of the U.S. because of its length. Within the U.S., it will ship by FedEx or Parcel Post, but cannot be shipped via UPS.
