This is a 50-year-old vintage R.L. Winston bamboo fly rod with patented fluted-hollow construction was built for Larry Jones in 1970. Larry was a very good family friend. Unfortunately Larry passed recently and his wife has asked me to sell the rod for her.

The six-sided (hexagonal), two-piece bamboo rod is 8’ 6” and weighs 4 3/8 ounces, best for a 6 weight. Guides, tip, ferrules, hook holder, cork, bakelight and wraps are mint and are as nice as the day he received it. The rod is exceptional right down to the cork handle it looks brand new. Unbelievably Larry so admired the rod that he was afraid he might damage it so he never used it.

The inscription on the rod base: Built for Larry W. Jones R. L. Winston; 8 1/2' - 4 3/8 oz #9937 Pat. No. 2537488. The tip is inscribed with matching numbers #9937.

The rod comes with the original R.L. Winston Rod Co. catalog from 1969-70 which tells all about the history of the company including bits about Doug Merrick & Gary Howells as well as the bamboo & other materials of the time. It also explains the processes of what it takes to make these beautiful rods and of course a complete line up of all the rods available at the time bamboo & fiberglass. It includes a price sheet & more. I guarantee there arent many of these catalogs floating around and it may very well be one of a kind. Also original aluminum rod tube and two socks.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire such a rare rod in brand new condition and include the era catalog with it, if this is the type of stuff you are interested in this quite frankly is a priceless package and without doubt Larry's most prized possession. The value is very hard to establish and some say it is or could be worth thousands but Larry's wife really needs the money to finance all the bills she is racking up from his passing. I believe the price I am setting is more then fair beings this is a very rare chance to acquire a catalog that maybe one of a kind as well as a rod that has never been used. Museum quality.

House of Hardy Palakona "The Phantom" Bamboo Fly Fishing Rod

Bridle leather case (and rod) has been protected in bubble-wrap and is un-blemished.
Cork handle is still wrapped in original protective plastic shrink wrap.

#4 line
6'10" / 208 cm
3 1/8 oz.
2 Sections
2 Tips

Supplied with original polished aluminum hardware, two tips, hand-fitted Rosewood ferrule plugs, deluxe rod bag and genuine Hardy English bridle leather case.


In 1997 Hardy introduced the Phantom Lightweight Palakona fly rod with a progressive action and a medium-fast taper.
The Lightweights turnover tight loops with a lower-middle to tip flexing profile.

During the middle 60's the Phantom was the rod to own. Designed by Jim Hardy, the Phantom's firm butt section matched with the slightly stiffer tip was all the rage. It gave anglers the ability to roll cast long distances and drop flies with pinpoint accuracy. The Phantom balances well in the hand and becomes a true extension of the anger's forearm. Wrapped in black things, the Phantom is a welcomed addition to any serious collection.

Paul H. Young bamboo fly rod, 7 1/2 ft, 2 pieces, 2 tips, made 1949
Paul H. Young bamboo fly rod, 7 1/2 ft, 2 pieces, 2 tips, made 1949

Specifications:
Rod Type: Fly Rod
Rod Length: 7'6" Fishing Type: Freshwater Fishing

For sale is a very rare Paul H. Young bamboo fly rod, made 1949. The rod length is 7 1/2 ft, with 2 pieces and with two tips. On the rod you can read the following inscription: Paul H. Young, Detroit Maker, 13/64 Fer, 7 1/2" - 3 1/4 oz., H.J. Noll - Mar.49, HDH Short Taper. Together with the rod comes the original bag and aluminium tube. The ferrules are tight and if you swing the rod up and down you can´t feel any click which cause from loose ferrules. The rod has an oil finish and is not varnished. All parts have the original length. I bought this rod a few years back from Hoagy B. Carmichael. He wrote the famous book A Master´s Guide To Building A Bamboo Fly Rod, build bamboo rods by his own and sells rare and high quality fly fishing tackel sometimes. In the past my dream was to fish a rod made by Paul Young himself so I bought this rod from Mr. Carmichael. Once a year I took the rod out of the bag but I have never used it. The rod is in excellent condition as you can see on the pictures. The rod was made when Young started to develop his famous tapers like Para 15, Perfectionist, Midge. A very rare and fine rod for fishing or to collect.

Offered is an Orvis Penn’s Creek 7’, 2 section, 2 tip, 4wt bamboo fly rod in like new condition. Serial #89189. Labeled weight is 3 5/8 oz.

I am the second owner of this rod. I purchased it from a very reputable bamboo rod builder who also sells pre-owned bamboo fly rods. I was told that the rod had never been fished but the original owner did lawn cast it. The rod appears to be in unfished/mint condition (no evidence of any foul fish odor inside the rod tube). I have never fished it or put a reel on it since I have owned the rod. I ordered a new replacement cloth rod sack directly from the Orvis bamboo rod shop due to the original owner’s name being inked (in black magic marker) on the rod sack that came with the rod. The original rod tube is in very good condition exhibiting an intact label. The tube has minor/light marks from handling and storage – no dents.

This is a rare offering for a rare Leonard. This H L Leonard fly rod has been stored since it was bought new and never used. It is a 8 foot 3/2 Special Tournament with a blued reel seat. The unfortunate thing is that it was probably stored in a hot attic as there is some slight scaling on the finish and the guides came off in the sock when taking the rod out. However, all the guides are accounted for and included with the rod. All sections are 32 1/2 inches in length, are perfectly straight and the ferrules are as tight as when it was made. There is the original packaging paper still stuck on the grip. There are no cracks, splits, or damage to the bamboo sections or components. The original rod tube has evidence of being stored for over half a century but there are no dents or dings. The sock is like new with no damage or soiling.
