8 foot 6 inch 2/2  JRR865  5 Weight Deluxe

This is a great rod for those preferring a lighter weight eight and one-half foot rod.  Based on a James Reams taper that Jim gave me some 18 years ago.  Hollow built, all blackened nickel silver furniture with a pale-yellow agate stripper.  A very lively, nice casting rod that does will on big water or small!  With Reams style full wells grip, deluxe unlocking slide band reel seat with Circassian walnut spacer.  Wrapped with pale yellow translucent wraps and dark claret tipping.  Really shows off the gold-toned bamboo!  Just finished in July of this year.   Aluminum tube, brass caps, canvas overbag.   $2500.00 plus shipping and insurance.

7′ 9″ 3/2  James Reams Rod.   Used

A very nice example of an earlier Reams rod!  This is s/n 63 hb.  It is for a 4/5 weight line.  Has a down-lock sliding band reel seat with birdseye maple spacer.  This is a well-fished rod with the patina acquired from fishing!  All nickel-silver furniture is blackened.  Replacement tube and rod sock, with original rod sock included.  Jim’s rods are not easy to come by.  His craftsmanship is meticulous and as a rod maker, he won’t be hurried.  This rod is available now at the attractive price of $1950 plus shipping and insurance.

Fiberglass Rods:

I do sell fiberglass rods from time to time.  They are a good value, and at times, a good solution for travel/security reasons.
