Orvis Golden Eagle Fiberglass Fly Rod 8' 9" #11 Wt. Outstanding Condition:
Nice Orvis Golden Eagle fiberglass fly rod built circa 1974. Near mint condition. I'm the original owner and it's been lawn cast only. Original bag and tube. Like most Orvis rods, it's rated one line size too high;I believe the rod is best with a WF10 line although that's only my opinion. Golden Eagles are really becoming tough to find as collectors and fisherman alike have discovered just how nice they really are. While many may prefer graphite for fly rods of this size, fiberglass will always have that smooth powerful action instead of the broomstick stiffness of graphite. This model, designed for tarpon, sailfish and other tough saltwater gamefish, is rarely offered for sale, especially in this condition. Reel seat is chrome plated brass and fighting butt is not removeable.
Don't let this one get away. Will ship world-wide but be aware that shipping and insurance will be commensurate with shipping destination.High buyer must wait for an invoicebefore paying to insure correct shipping and insurance charges. Payment expected within 5 days or rod will be relisted.
