George Halstead Bamboo (split Cane) Fly Fishing Vintage Rod 7 Foot 3/2 Very Rare:
Up for sale is a vintage George Halstead Bamboo Fly Rod. The rod is in excellent original condition with the exception that the hook keeper is missing. Halstead rods are extremely rare and those shorter than 8 feet are almost impossible to find in any condition. This one is a 7 foot 3/2 rod and it is in excellent, original, unrestored condition. Although the rod is not marked it has nearly all of the traits that Halstead's are known for. I contacted John Gallas (bamboo rod maker) about the rod to confirm it's authenticity. Also posted it on the Bamboo rod forum http://classicflyrodforum dot com were you can read more about the rod. These don't come up very often and for good reason. This one is slightly parabolic in it's taper (thin Payne Parabolic) and is a joy to cast. Handles a 3 WF or 4 DT like a dream. The ferrules and metal work are incredible. High buyer to pay $35 shipping, handling and insurance. Good luck offerding!
