Jenkins, C.W. - GA75, 7'6" 2/2 4-5wt Bamboo Fly Rod
For sale here is a Jenkins model GA75 7'6" 2-piece/2-tip bamboo rod in excellent used condition. Lightly flamed cane with 3-up node work, blued Swiss-style ferrules and oxidized guides wrapped in caramel brown windings. Ferrule fit is perfect and all sections are full length, straight, and serialized (GA75-82). The wraps at the tip tops are differentiated for ease of rotation. 6" cigar grip is lightly soiled but smooth. Cap and ring reel seat over mortised wood spacer. The nickel silver winding check and reel seat hardware show some bluing loss and the butt cap has some light scratching. Medium fast dry fly action, this rod has spent some time on the water but was cared for very nicely. The varnish remains in fantastic condition and the rod is ready for many more years of service. Sold in original bag and tube with makers decal.
