J.L. BRADLEY 6’3” “MIDGE” BAMBOO FLY ROD, 3wt

Excellent Bradley Midge in splendid condition.  Rated for a 3wt line, serial number U-1.  Joe Bradley’s rods are often described as semi-parabolic, showing the flat butt taper of the full parabolic rods by Young, Pezon et Michel, and others and offering a deep flexing casting rhythm.  Beyond these similarities, they are easier to cast than the earlier rodmakers’ parabolic tapers, and do not require as much attention.  The Bradley Midge is especially well-suited to quick dry fly work at moderate distances, delivering pin-point accuracy.

The rod features a darkened cap-and-ring reel seat over burl spacer, 5 ½’ cork, no hook keeper, gold silk tipped black, uniform blonde cane, 3-up node alignment, agate stripper, bronzed snakes, Super Z style ferrules with ferrule plug, bag, and tube.  The tips are book-matched, indicating that they came from the same piece of cane.  This is a fine rod.
