HARDY 8”  “HOLLOLIGHT” HOLLOW-BUILT BAMBOO FLY ROD

This is an 8’ 3/2 Hollolight, SN H32081.  Rod weight is 4 ounces on my scale, without ferrule plugs.  Ferrules are 18/64” and 13/64”. The rod features aluminum sliding band reel seat over 5 ½” cork, hook keeper, full intermediate wraps, agate stripping guide, blackened NS ferrules, beautiful tiny bridge guides on the mid and tips, agate tip-tops.  The rod comes in Hardy’s heavy canvas zip bag.  Also, comes in a heavy aluminum tube, probably not original to the rod.  I believe the rod was sold in the canvas bag without the tube.

Condition is excellent with some soiling to the cork.  Tips on British rods are usually made ¾” shorter than the mid and butt, probably to prevent damage in storage and transport.  Lots of traditional British charm here, on a modern rod with modern casting characteristics.
