Up for sale today is myrare Goodwin Granger 8040 8' 3/2 Special in restored original condition. This is an original Goodwin Granger and not a later Wright & McGill 8040 as most consider the GG 8040 superior to the W&M version. This model has the sought after coke bottle grip and patent pending internal uplocking nickel silver reel seat. A fly rod taper that that is commonly referred to as the best 8' bamboo flyrod ever, the GG 8040 throws a very graceful 4 or 5 wt fly line depending on your preference. This rod is almost in new condition, but has had the varnish restored by Glen Brackett of Winston/Sweetgrass. It was stored and not used in an attic for decades. The varnish had become soft and malleable so I had it re-varnished. All of the rod's hardware is original. I have not used this rod save for some lawn casting.All around as the pictures show, this 8040 is in excellent condition and ready for years of service as fine rod for trout. What more can you want… a legendary Goodwin Granger 8040 8' Bamboo fly rod ready to be impregnated with fish catching mojo!See pics and feel free to ask any questions. Thanks for looking and tight lines.
