description: Probably one of the finest dry fly rods you will find. Just a Stunning rod in all respects from the late great Sam Carlson. Sam only built a few hundred rods in his career. Standard flamed cane, red wraps with black tipping, light colored wood with Sam's standard aluminum up locking reel seat. Dana Gray (The New Carlson Rod Co Owner who was Sam’s apprentice) was kind enough to look up the history. This rod comes with a detailed letter of providence from Dana. If you don’t know Dana then you are missing out! What a complete Gentleman and great rod builder keeping the Carlson tradition alive! This is truly a special rod in many ways as most are in my book.. This Carlson Four was made for one of Sam's longtime customers, Atwood Collin the 3rd. The rod is numbered 7710-4752 a true 5wt as Dana states and I concur, which is contrary to the 6wt line designation etched onto the rod tube by the original owner. This rod was the 10th rod made in 1977. The rod itself has been very well taken care of and is in near “E” condition. Just a wonderful piece of fly fishing history.
