CALVIELLO AND TRUCCO  BAMBOO FLY ROD, 7’ FOR 4wt LINE

Calviello and Trucco made this rod, SN 00030, for Ernest Schweibert in 2005.  The rod is so marked, and was documented by the maker, Marcello Calveillo, on the Fly Rod Forum, Surprise at the last Lang’s Catalog – The Classic Fly Rod Forum. (click link) Like many of the Calveillo & Trucco rods, this one features their distinctive bamboo ferrules.  As the photos show, the ferrules are essentially tip-over style ferrules with the female sections reinforced with wrappings.  The results are sturdy and practical.

The rod offers a blued NS uplocking reel seat over tropical hardwood, 6” cigar shape cork, no hook keeper, 3 x 3 node arrangement, agate stripper, bronzed steel snakes, bookmatched tips, tan silk tipped black.  Written on the butt shaft, “Calviello & Trucco~  CF704~No 00030/05 // Specially made for Mr. Ernest Schweibert.”   Condition is excellent overall, with hardware, cane, and finish all noteworthy.

This rod casts a 4wt very well indeed.  The bamboo ferrule material is not noticeable to me.  It is a quick 4wt, well-suited to delicate presentations and pin-point accuracy.  The rod comes in a custom-made 2” tube with heavy brass cap and collar, as well as a heavy brass end cap.  The label shows specifications of the rod, the web address, the serial number, and the date of construction.  Provenance on request.
