Jenkins, C.W. - Model GA80, 8' 2/2, 4-5wt Bamboo Rod

For sale here is a Model GA80, 8' 2/2 for 4 or 5wt bamboo rod from the C.W. Jenkins & Son rod company. Serial #80-104. Excellent used condition, this rod was made while Charlie & Steve were in the shop together. Featuring oven tempered cane with bright Snake brand guides and Swiss-style ferrules, wrapped in brown windings with gold tipping and oxblood accents. The tip tops are wrapped differently for ease of rotation. The second snake guide up from the ferrule on one tip is a replacement, although it's a very close match. 6" cork grip is slightly soiled but smooth. Bright NS cap & ring reel seat over mortised wood spacer. The sections are straight, and the ferrules fit perfectly. There are some small mounting marks on the reel seat, but overall, the rod was well taken care of. Sold in the original bag & tube with maker’s decal.
