FS Anderson Custom Rod 12'3" 8 wt PRICE DROP

Up on the block. An ACR 12'3" 8 wt STH. I bought this rod from a fellow board member this past summer. I've had it out on the water a dozen or so times this past fall. It lists as handling a scandi head in the 450 to 460 grain range and skagit lines in the 540 to 550 grain range. The rod has some typical male ferrule marks and one small nick on the blank above the handle (see pic 4 - looked close and it doesn't appear to have made it to the graphite so just cosmetic) and a nick on the lower wood handle (see pic 2). I'm of the two rods mentality (one light and one heavy stick) and I have a new rod en route and this one will just collect dust now. Gary does an amazing job in the details on his rods. Beautiful wood work and thread wraps on the blank. Looking to get $350 shipped CONUS and actual shipping outside the states. Thanks for looking and please shoot me a PM if interested or with any questions. Paypal preferrred.

Weekend bump. Last time and I'll put it in the closet to sulk after this.

Surprised this is still here. If I needed a shorter 8wt I'd be all over this.

OK last bump for real and a price drop. New rod is in my grubby paws and want to find this a new home.

THIS IS going to end up being one expensive day on the Spey Pages.

Consider the rod 'sold.' PM me with 'details' on funding. You get one guess as to where the 'new reel' will end up .....

$$ should be in your pay pal account as if a couple of seconds ago.
