Rick's Rods Banner

BF1397

Paul H. Young

8', 2/2 Prosperity model,  crafted in 1946 according to the Fly Rod Gift Certificate.  Starting at the base of the rod, it has a Featherweight down-locking reel seat. There is a divot in the cork above the reel seat and additional damage at the top of the grip. Much of the "Prosperity" name stamp is visible. It looks as if the guides were re-wrapped with orange and black jasper thread. Blued nickel silver ferrules size 14. Both tip sections are short at the tip end (1 is 2 inches short and the other is 10 inches short). Included are bag, aluminum tube and a "Fly Rod Gift Certificate" signed by Paul H. Young, President. There is a repair wrap on the longer tip section. This rod is deserving of a restoration and tip scarfing.

Price: $1,495.00
