Split bamboo fly fishing rod made by Montague, the Ausable River model, with very good legible label. In excellent condition, it was restored by previous owner and not used after restoration. The fly rod is 8 1/2 feet original assembled length, 3 piece, all are original equal length for a 5 weight. Comes with a Ted Williams Plastic tube with screw off cap. New rod sock is also included. No damage to the hard plastic tube or sock. It appears that the rod was refinished and two guides were rewrapped. NO cracks or delamination to bamboo. No cracks in the ferrules, they “pop” when pulled apart. Nice clean cork handle. The nickel silver down locking reel seat is perfect as are the ferrules. Very good to medium fast action. Excellent for accurate dry fly presentation. The Ausable River model is not a common fly rod. I do not believe from what I have read that this came with an extra tip. This rod is ready to fish. 5 others to choose from.
