REDWING FLY RODS
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.
