New boards, new offer price ...

Due to over-expansion of my travel rod collection – you might not believe that’s possible, but it’s true – I’ve decided that the time has come to part with my 7-piece Redington Wayfarer WFR 906/7.

Some of you old-timers might remember that I bought it “as new” from another forumite about a year ago, intending to use it for chucking streamers and full-sinking lines.

Perhaps not surprisingly, it didn’t like that very much, but I’ve tried it once with a floating line too, which makes it a demon on stillwaters. Then again, I don’t fish those very much either. So that leaves one of you lucky people with the chance to give it a really good home.

As I’ve indicated in the title, this rod is:

… practically brand new: I’ve only fished it twice myself

… 9 feet long, for a 6 weight line, with an action that sits on the powerful end of progressive

… designed to break down into 7 pieces: it’s a work of art, and *very* packable indeed, with each piece just 17 inches long

…fitted with two lined stripping rings plus snakes, half wells handle, and a hardwood and smoked aluminium reel seat. Here’s what it looks like (complete with US prices if you scroll down):

… complete with compartmentalised rod sock, fitting into Redington’s classic scarlet-covered cordura tube that could probably shake off a nuclear strike

… £100 including Royal Mail Silver Service (or whatever they call it now) to all UK addresses.
