Goodwin Granger Colorado Special Cs8642 Bamboo Fly Rod For Sale
Excellent Goodwin Granger & Co. Colorado Special, 8 1/2' single tip bamboo fly rod. Based on Michael Sinclair's Bamboo Rod Restoration Handbook, this is a 1920s era Granger, noted because of the all nickel-silver sliding band reel seat with the soldered hood. As you can see, the rod is a single tip and that tip is about 2 1/2" short. The rod casts a DT 5 weight line perfectly, even with the short tip. I think the rod was refinished, professionally, at some point, because the wraps and varnish are excellent but the usual stamped Colorado Special ink name is missing from the butt section. You can see the original paper label on the original bag, which is in fairly rough shape. The Goodwin Granger name is engraved on the reel seat. This rod is straight and the ferrules fit just fine. Comes in replacement bag and metal tube, which is missing the cap. I will also ship with it the original labeled rod bag with the wooden insert. Winner pays with PayPal within 3 days of the end of the sale and pays $15 shipping in the US, $20 to Canada and $45 overseas. See my other sales for fly fishing reels, books and other vintage fishing items. Thanks for looking!
