REDWING FLY RODS  7FT.  6IN.  " TYPE MARTHA MARIE"



Redwing Fly Rods  7ft. 6in.  " Type Martha Marie",  2/2 ,# 5/6 line, 3.41 oz. semi- parabolic.  My version of the classic with a stronger, faster butt taper ( something I think helps the design given the line weight and perceived use). This is one of my personal rods, lightly used and in perfect condition. Dark flaming over golden cane,  real spar varnish finish, super "Z" type ferrules, blued metals, 2 fine rings over ash burl cork tapered to seat, gold silks , black at the ferrules.  I don't say this often but this is one of my best rods/tapers and portrays  all that is desired in the Marie with a caveat to more strength and fighting power; especially in tighter spots and pure dry fly fishing with larger flies if desired. No messing around here and I'll truly cast this rod against and others.
