Garcia Conolon Fishing rod
Hello Everyone Else. As some of you may know, we truley enjoy refurbishing old fly rods. I have done numerous through the years and recently my love o f fiberglass fly rods has had us to this treasure. This is what we; it is an antique Conolon Garcia Live Fiber 7 base 8 inches fly fishing rod. The annals of Narmco, title of the business that designed this rod is here. It is an extremely interesting record i need to say, considering these people were the very first company to create tubular glass blanks. We purchased this pole in certain just what pristine form, nevertheless I wanted to fish it.
What I have done is completely re-done this pole making it look better than initial and totally fishable.
I've varnished the whole blank
Polished and cleaned the gorgeous brass ferrules
Washed the handle and epoxied the bond wraps
In addition will realize that I added an innovative new stripping guide, considering that the old-style guide will just choke once you you will need to take line... And this rod will capture range.
It's a smooth medium slow action, hefty but perfectly balanced. It is similar to taking out a vintage Corvette or Mopar or 427 Ford road pole. I favor making these sleeper kind rods, and also this is the better one I have built to time.
In addition added my JP Ross Crest into blank. Hopefully some day this may enhance the worth of the pole as we believe our company is well certified to restore any fly fishing rod of yesteryear.
In addition have found the best range that fish this rod, its a wf 5 weight, and I also have actually included this new range using bundle. But which was insufficient. In addition discovered that to fish these rods, you will need to balance them really. Just what exactly used to do had been, I found a classic 1950 Pfleuger 1495 Vintage Reel. This reel is special given that it was manufactured in the USA, and features the original Ivory center limit and reel handle. The reel in addition comes with a vintage 6 fat double taper range upon it, just in case you wish to simply put the reel in the rack and enjoy it. I have already been buying a number of these reels recently, and I also simply destroyed one on ebay for $272.00, but that certain had the round diamolite range shield. This reel is very easily really worth $100.00 to $200.00 to your collector. Whenever I moved over it, it had grease in it that appeared to be old ear-wax. I washed it and will lube it before it ships. In addition added a brand new aluminum vent seal pole pipe, with bronze anodizing, and a hand coated limit by me personally. I'm asking a firm $499.95 for this whole ready. Just sold through a contact. Please e-mail me personally if you are interested. I will ship in the united states 100% free. If you're in search of an inventment plus one to challenge your self regarding liquid, search no further.
