Winston Fiberglass Fly Rod In 4-pc, 8.5' For #6 Line Collectible Condition For Sale

Winston Fiberglass Fly Rod In 4-pc, 8.5' For #6 Line Collectible Condition

This is an early example of Winston fiberglass technology in 8.5’ length for a #6 line in 4-piece configuration. Included is a letter of provenance from former Winston owner Glenn Brackett authenticating this as factory original rod, bag, and tube.Everything is in excellent, collectible condition; there are no surprises here. The four-piece configuration seems to be somewhat rare. The rod has the ability to fish any practical distance and is an exceptional casting tool. For more on this period of R.L. Winston history, see the article "History of Fiberglass Rods at Winston During Tom Morgan's Ownership". Morgan mentions the type rod tube & sack as seen with this rod.

**Due to the angle of the reel seat hardware, I did not notice the tape on the insert until after photographing. It appears to have been applied to secure a reel with a thin foot. I have removed it and picture three (3) shows the reel seat insert to be in perfect condition.

An American icon among fly fishing cognoscenti; a person could wait a long time for such a prime example to resurface.

As much as I detest taxation, I won't value customs forms for less than the purchase/insured price of the item sold.
