Up for sale arather Nice CIRCA 1965 FENWICK #FF85 8-1/2 FT., 2/1 TUBULAR FIBERGLASS FLY ROD WITH THE ORIGINAL LABELED BAG & CORRECTLY LABELED ALUMINUM TUBE. This example was built by the Fenwick Co. of Long Beach, Calif., sometime around 1965. It's marked withSerial #E1257 (which would indicate a 1964-1965 model), but is also marked with the 1965 Patent number for the "Feralite" ferrules, so I assume it was produced later in 1965 orpossibly even 1966. Rodshaft carries the "Fenwick Feralite" eagle decal and is also stamped "FF85 -8-1/2' - 3-3/4 oz. and "A.F.T.M.A. Fly Line NO.7" above that.

Rod is in about Fine+ condition for these, showing overall wear one would associate with normal use. Blanks are damage-free, equal length and are arrow-straight. All wraps are solid and complete. All guides, tip top, ferrules, hook keeper, winding check and buttcap are in nice shape. The reel seat works perfectly, showing moderate wear. The solid cork grip is in superb condition.
