description: One for the collector that appreciates museum quality fly rods. Original owner of this rod was M.E. Hull who purchase all the Gillum equipment and continued working after Pinky's death in 1966. What more can I say! Custom made one of a kind H.S.Pinky Gillum Circa made in the early 50's. Has all the standard highlights of a Gillum from this era, copper brown wraps tipped in black and gold. I have never seen an unfished Gillum and feast your eyes! It's in "M" as new condition. In fact the paper was just remove from the rod before I received it. James Schaaf purchase the rod from M.E. Hull in 1979 and then to my client where it has been setting in a control environment for the last few years. In the letter of provindence Jim states, this is one of the most stunning Gillums I have ever seen! Perfect varnish, resorcinol glue line ala Pinky, uplocking logo stamped reel seat over mahogny spacer, SuperZ ferrules. Once again a collectors dream rod for sure. These are some of the rarest and most valuable rod you will never find. This rod is in 100 original condition with original bag and labeled tube which is about 99%. An extremely rare size from a very classic rod maker. Gillum rods continue to bring the highest prices of any rods bought to market and this rod is one of a kind.
