Wards Angler Pride Bamboo FLy Rod, 9 foot three piece two tips, Refurbished by JP Ross

There is not much that I know about the Wards Anglers Pride Bamboo Fly Rod. I know that they were sold by Montgomery Wards back “in the day”. I re-furbished this rod and outfitted it with agate stripping guide and Nickel Titanium double foot guides in traditional deep red thread wraps.

I am getting rid of this rod because it is sitting in my shop on a shelf and it is a rod I acquired in my quest for the perfect bamboo fly rod. The rod is very solid and would look just beautiful in anyone’s shadow box or corner study.

Based on the amount of time into this rod including the full strip down and complete re-varnish, I believe this rod is a steal at $295.00

It is fishable and I always though this would be a great rod for small poppers or green drakes on the West Canada Creek. 

Oh, well…. I hope someone enjoys it as much as I have giving it the TLC it deserves as a righteous bamboo fly rod.
