Charlie Jenkins “GA80” – 8’0” – 2/2 – 4/5wt
This one has all the typical Jenkins appointments including: nickel silver slide band into pocket reel seat with wood spacer-Garrison style cigar grip-Nickel silver winding check-Brown wraps tipped yellow and nicely executed varnish finish-Comes with original labeled tube & bag (Previous owners name and Colorado address is faintly visible on tube)
Condition: Very Good Plus, Plus/Excellent Minus with its only flaws being that the hook keeper has pulled free of its windings and is missing, but not unsightly (please see photo) and lastly there are a few blemishes in the bluing of the female ferrule from honest use (please see photo)
Overall this is a very nice, early Jenkins carrying serial number GA80-16 indicating this was the 16th GA80 model created by Charlie! I like this rod best with a 4wt line.
Inv. Number: BRC2021
Fred DeBell “Classicane” - 9’ – 3/2 – 18/64 & 12/64 F - 5/6wt

The “Classicane” Series of Rods were made for the famous Andre Puyons’ Creative Sports Fly Shop that was located in Northern California (rod tube has Andre’s Creative Sports business card attached)-I have owned a number of these rods over the years and found them all to be very nice efforts by Fred.
Inv. Number: BR22
Phillipson “Kit Rod” – 7’0” – 2/1 – 4/5wt
The “Kit Rod” was sold by Phillipson in the (early) 1970’s and was offered in both bamboo & fiberglass-This one is made up of a Phillipson Impregnated “Peerless” bamboo blank-Phillipson nickel silver ferrules and Phillipson reel seat, etc., etc.
Reel seat is the larger “no Rock” type, anodized copper with a good looking wood spacer-6” cigar grip is lightly soiled otherwise Ex-Bent wire hook keeper-Nickel silver ferrules-Chromed guides-Custom black wraps, tipped gold-Script from Phillipson reads: Phillipson 7’ 3oz #5 ~ also custom scripted from builder is: FS Custom for (customers name) ~ FS is in reference to “Fishermen’s Spot” Fly Shop of Van Nuys, CA-Comes with bag, sorry no case
Note: I wanted to point out that due to the way this kit was originally assembled, the butt measures approximately 3/8” longer than the tip section (tip has not been damaged)-When assembled O.L. is approximately 84 ½”) and of coarse; none of this effects it’s performance-A fine casting, medium/fast action rod!
Condition: Save the above mentioned imperfection this one is Very Good, Plus
Price: Was $350.00 > Now $295.00
Inv. Number: BR218
