For Sale: Orvis Impregnated Salmon rod in excellent + condition.
- Rod is 9'6" - 3/2 with a 5 in. extension butt.
- All sections marked with Serial No. 33150, made in 1962 by George Reid and Calvin Skinner.
- Tube label indicates 20/13 ferrules, weight of 7 5/8 oz. (shows 8.15 oz. on my digital scale), and rated for CBC (DT-8) line.
- All metal reel seat with removable butt plug for extension butt.
- Beautiful rich, caramel colored impregnated bamboo.
- Original rod bag has separate compartment for extension butt and still has original brochure attached.
This rod shows little or no signs of use. No dings in the cane, all wraps are perfect, no flex cracking on the ferrule wraps, bluing is perfect, absolutely straight and tight. A great rod to add some challenge and character to your salmon and steelhead fishing. $625 shipped and insured within CONUS. PM or email at [email protected] if interested. Thanks.

Additional photos

A few additional photos. The photo with the extension butt in place shows the rod with a 3 7/8" Hardy Perfect (not included) to give a feel for the typical size of reel that would be used with this rod.

Would give anything to have this rod :whoa:
This is the rod that steelhead fly fishing legend Bill McMillan used to use on the Washougal river in Washington.
