PHILLIPSON “PREFERRED” 8’6” BAMBOO FLY ROD

Here is a Phillipson 3/2 Preferred in its original tapered bag and square tube.  The cap is a shop-made replacement that seems to work OK.  Condition of the rod is excellent and all original.  There is a minor hook bump on one tip, as shown in photo 11.  I would have a clear wrap put on this, or fish the other tip.  The rod weighs 4.6 ounces on my scale.  Ferrules are 17/64” and 11/64”.  The rod is marked for a 5wt, which is about right.  I believe it will fish a 6wt on windy days, and you might try a DT5 or even WF4 for delicate presentations to persnickety fish.
