REDWING FLY RODS
John Goddard " Nymph" 8 1/2 ft. $ 5/6 line
John Goddard " Nymph " bamboo Fly Rod, 8 1/2 ft. 2/1 ( made that way) # 5/6 line. Constable built rod to Goddard's specifications for classic nymph fishing. Matt finish to eliminate rod flash; staggered ferrule design ,in very good to excellent condition with Fuji stripper and tip top guide for better casting, waluut DL seat. has a very fine light action in a great nymph taper. A great design from a British master who died in 2013 at the age of 89. most famous for angling writing, fly creation and the modern nymph compendium. maybe only a couple in the world.
Orvis 6 1/2 ft. 3/1, early model, #5 line. An early model, inked Orvis on shaft. All lengths correct. I had to replace the "chewed" cork with new , same as original and replaced the typical Orvis metal seat with a cork insert burl seat and two rings. Deep orange silks; I replaced a few on the butt and mid sections. It's casting stroke is a semi- parabolic in nature and gives precise , tight loops with a # 5 line ( actually likes a WF line). Ferrules in very good to excellent condition. Poker straight shafts; I did a over-wrap on the area just above the tip ferrule due to a small ding but the rod is as sound as a dollar.
