ORVIS PATENT PENDING IMPREGNATED BAMBOO FLY ROD

This is an 8’ 4 3/8 ounce rod (on my scale) made in November, 1947, by George Reid and Ed Hemphill, SN 4787.  The rod is marked “Orvis Impregnated” / “Pat. Pend.”    Similar mark on the reel seat butt cap.  Seems to cast a 6wt best.  Condition is excellent.  Finish is fine, ferrules tight, all wraps sound, guides straight.  Comes in a green canvas bag and a brass capped tube that I believe is correct.  The ferrules were cleaned, but not the cork.   Very nice rod with an impressive pedigree, ready to go fishing.   Note:  the photo of the writing on the rod was enhanced for legibility.
