the sale of this rod fell through, so it's now on ebay.


A lovely Wright & McGill Granger Special 8' 5wt 3/1 Bamboo Fly Rod. Beautiful dark ammonia treated cane with the classic Granger Green silk thread wraps. All sections full length. The cork has not been used as a hook keeper and is not ridged. This is probably the nicest cork i've seen on a granger. The patented uplocking reel seat functions flawlessly and smoothly and is completely free of dents. This rod shines. Replacement bag and tube. A wonderful 8 foot 5 weight bamboo fly rod. The 8040 taper is one of the highly regarded best bamboo tapers ever. This is a wonderful collectible rod that is a pleasure to cast and fish. Grangers are bound to only climb in value throughout the years.
