WRIGHT AND MCGILL "STREAM AND LAKE" 8642 BAMBOO FLY ROD ...$550 SOLD

This Wright and McGill 8' 6", 4 ½ ounce rod is basically unused with the plastic still on the cork grip.  All metalwork, wraps, cork, and finish are excellent.  Comes with original bag and original, marked tube.  The "Stream and Lake" was Wright and McGill’s successor to Granger's "Champion" as an entry-level grade.  Cane quality and tapers were supposed to be consistent throughout the line, but the color of one tip on this rod is slightly lighter than the other pieces.  The W&M and Goodwin Granger 8642 rods are legendary for their casting and fishing quality.  Progressive tapers with moderately swelled butt, 17/64" and 11/64" ferrules, 5/64" tips below tiptop wraps.  Classic 5wt 3-piece rod.
