Montague, Fishkill

0268: Montague, "Fishkill", varnished 6-strip bamboo fly rod. 9', 3/1, #5/6 line. 5-1/2 oz. Blackened down-locking reel seat with aqua green, plastic barrel. Excellent half-Wells, solid cork, grip. Japanned nickel silver, serrated, waterproof ferrules. Nickel silver stripper guide. Hardened steel snake guides. Lime green wraps tipped with Goldenrod. Mid-joint medallions. Closed-wound strap & ring hook keeper. All joints straight and full length, tip joint is brand new old stock replacement. Supplied in a custom made, labeled cloth sleeve. A quality storage case is available.

This higher quality Montague 'Fishkill' rod was professionally rebuilt with all new wraps and a brand new old stock bamboo tip joint. There is just enough of the original Montague decal remaining to verify the identity along with the distinctive green and black reel seat. I have added a script "Montague Fishkill" signature. The ferrules are the original Japanned nickel-silver style with hand soldered, welted construction. UV protective spar varnish finishes the rebuild.

This is a later issue of the popular Montague 'Fishkill' model (est. early 1950s at around $30) and should prove to be a consistent performer for many seasons to come due to its brand new tip joint. The bamboo is mildly flamed 'Tonkin Cane' and the rod 'action' is medium/fast. A lot of performance and eye appeal, at an affordable price. Refurbished to look and perform like new. $170
