HARDY 6’ BAMBOO FLY ROD FOR A 5wt LINE

This is a Hardy “Palakona” rod made during the Harris and Sheldon years.  It is shown  in the 1975 catalog (p.10), as a one-tip rod coming in the familiar Hardy’s blue canvas bag, fitted with NS ferrules, skeleton reel seat, and a ferrule plug, and sporting red wraps tipped green.  These rods were made in four lengths from 6’ to 7 ½’ and were probably intended to tap into the enthusiasm for midge rods during the 1960s and 1970s.

Condition is excellent with all finishes and components fine.  Ferrule fit is crisp.  Cork has very modest soiling.  The rod has been kept in an after-market Champion 2” aluminum tube.  The rod is marked for a 5wt, but fishes 4wt to 6wt very well.
