ORVIS “FAR AND FINE” 7’9” GRAPHITE FLY ROD FOR A 5wt

Excellent Orvis graphite rod for a 5wt.  The Far and Fine is one of the Orvis staggered ferrule rods; that is, the tip is a few inches longer than the butt.  I am not sure why they were made this way.  Bamboo parabolic rods were made with staggered ferrules by Pezon et Michel and others supposedly to put more weight in the tip and make the butt flex deeper.  Not sure this applies to graphite.  Anyhow, the Far and Fine is a fine casting rod with a very pleasing action.

This one is in excellent condition with a down-locking reel seat over cork spacer, comfortable 6” grip, hook keeper, Fuji style stripper with insert, maroon wraps, tip over ferrule with reinforced female end, original bag and marked tube.  The rod weighs 2 7/8 ounces and carries the production number 0983.
