For sale here is a 7'9" 2/2 5wt "Special Dry Fly" bamboo rod from Mark Canfield (Red Willow & Co.). Excellent used condition, #439. Medium tempered cane with bronzed left hand twist snake guides and Mildrum stripping guide. Red & green variegated silk windings with black & white variegated tipping. All sections are straight, full length & serialized, and the Swiss-style ferrules fit perfectly. Strap & ring hook keeper and nickel silver winding check over 5.5" cork grip (clean & smooth). Downlocking reel seat over dark wood spacer and pocketed nickel silver butt cap. A powerful, positive action 5wt. I like it with a DT5 but it feels like it would handle a 6wt line as well. A beautifully finished rod from the master craftsman. The rod has seen little use and is ready for service. Sold in the original bag and tube with makers decal and custom brass capped tube.
