Rare Kibby C. Gart Sq Fiberglass Fishing Rod - 2pc 6'6" - For Easy Restoration For Sale
I have been selling fishing items for many years and this is the first one that I have ever seen. It is a Kibby C. Gart fishing rod that was made back in the 50's and is in great shape less a minor restoration. The rod is a 2 piece construction and is 6'6' in total length. The cork handle is in good shape but there is a natural break [ picture 4 shows the cork handle with the seam ] that really does not affect the rod itself. 6 eyelets and all original. The issue is at the first eyelet. It looks to have been rewrapped with a plain thread instead of the orange/black thread that's on the rest of the eyelets. I have seen it around so I do know that it can be matched. Kibby C. Gart made beautiful and collectible bamboo fly rods back in the 50's and are still sought after but the fiberglass rods appear to be quite rare as you never see them. The rod design is square tapered and without any issues. Interesting reel seat made by Sports Components Inc. of Redondo Beach Calif. They too were quite popular back in the fifties. I love the way the ferrule converts a square design to a round one. If you are not happy then send it back for a refund. Thanks for looking and good luck if offerding. I ship all my rods in hard tubes to protect your investment during shipping.
