Orvis - Midge 7'6" 2/2 5wt Bamboo Rod
For sale here is an Orvis Midge, 7'6" 2-piece / 2-tip 5wt bamboo rod in near mint condition. Serial #82152, made in 1978. The rod is built on a light colored impregnated blank, featuring bright guides wrapped in transparent caramel windings. 11/64 step down ferrules are darkly blued and the fit is perfect. All sections are straight, full length and serialized. Strap & ring hook keeper, 6" cigar grip and down-locking aluminum reel seat over wood spacer. The only signs of use are some very light reel mounting marks on the reel seat. Rated for a 5wt, although I prefer it with a WF or DT4. Sold in the original bag & tube with engraved hexagonal tube cap, and blank warranty card.
