Barder Rod Co 8' 2-piece 2-top #4-weight
fly rod and leather case in exceptional condition c2007
This is a rod for smaller streams where a short rod would be a
hindrance. It will fish small floating flies, nymphs and wet flies
with great finesse. Subtle presentations to wary wild trout and
grayling are its forte. At only 4½ ounces it is very light and
comfortable in the hand, with a smooth action, no bounciness and linear
tracking during casting. You fix your sights on the spot where you
want your fly to land and the rod will send it there. It is
particularly well suited to fly lines with longer front tapers intended
for shy fish.
Only a hint of silvering inside the hand-bronzed snake guides and on the
edge of the butt cap gives away its otherwise as-new condition. It
has been correctly stored and maintained. It is in exceptionally
fine (at least 97% of new) condition in every respect. It is finished in
our standard fly rod livery.
The highly figured olive wood reel seat has blued nickel silver
metalwork, and the blued nickel silver Swiss pattern ferrule has an
olive wood stopper to match. The guides are hand bronzed hard chromed
stainless steel throughout.
The rod has two identical tips, numbered 1 and 2. It comes in its
silk bag and aluminium lined hand stitched bridle leather case.
The rod has had very light and occasional use. Commissioned in
September 2006, we completed it in December 2007. There is now a
24-30 month lead time for this model, currently priced at £2,800, so
this is a rare opportunity to obtain an exceptional example at an
attractive price for immediate delivery or collection.
All pre-owned rods supplied by us are issued with a specially
printed and individually signed and dated certificate of ownership.
