CHRIS CARLIN/PAUL FISCHER BAMBOO FLY ROD, 7’9” FOR 5wt LINE

Chris Carlin built the blanks for the rod and Pennsylvania rodsmith Paul Fischer finished them out in 2009.  Excellent workmanship and finish throughout on this 3-piece, 2-tip rod.  The rod weighs 4 ¼ ounces on my scale, with 15/64” and 10/64” ferrules.  Condition is superb with slight soiling to the cork, immaculate finish, excellent hardware and fittings.

The rod offers a darkened NS slide-band reel seat over hardwood spacer, 5 ½” cork, hook keeper, swelled butt, agate stripper, blued steel snakes, tan wraps tipped green, darkened NS step-down truncated ferrules, 3 x 3 nodes, and bookmatched tips.  This cane work has alternating lighter and darker splines—a distinctive feature that is quite attractive. Rod is marked “Carlin/pf ‘09” at the butt ferrule. Provenance on request.
