Halstead, G.H. - 9' 3/2 Bamboo Salmon Rod
For sale here is a 9' 3-piece / 2-tip bamboo salmon rod made by George Halstead. Good used condition, the butt and mid sections are completely re-wrapped with slightly darker brown windings. One tip is all original and the other has two re-wrapped guides and an invisible wrap between the first and second snake guides down from the tip top. It's hard to tell what the wrap is covering, but I can see a slightly darker glue line along one seam. The rod features medium flamed cane with snake guides and carbide stripping guide. The wraps are brown with green/gold accents. Blued ferrules fit perfectly and the butt ferrule is reinforced. Bent wire hook keeper, aluminum winding check and 7" cork grip (soiled but smooth). Classic Halstead aluminum up-locking reel seat with aluminum hood over dark wood spacer. A stout rod, it feels like it would handle an 8 or 9wt. Sold in a replacement bag and original Champion tube. From the collection of Thomas H. Clark.
