ORVIS BATTENKILL 8’ BAMBOO FLY ROD

Very nice, high condition Orvis 3/2 Battenkill, SN 70028.  Marked as 4 ½ ounces for a 7wt.  Like most Orvis bamboo rods, it fishes one line size lighter.  Features downlocking reel seat over mahogany, 6 ½” grip, bent wire hook keeper, Carboloy stripper, blued ferrules, bright snake guides.  The rod shows no sign of fishing use or excessive handling.  Finish is, of course, the redoubtable Orvis impregnation.  The casting characteristics of this rod are exemplary with a 6wt.  Good accuracy for close in dry fly work, completely at home with sub-surface presentations. The photo of the writing on the butt shaft has been enhanced for legibility
