description: Considered by many to be one of the finest Rodmakers of our time. Douglas J. Ducks passing in 2001 was a great loss to flyfishing. Beautiful Douglas Duck model 2O6 Serial number 2052 Built in 1999. Medium brown tone cane, Garrison grip with nickel silver slide band and cap, maple wood spacer, bright nickel silver Super Z type ferrules, Carbaloy stripper guide with black snake guides. A perfect rendition of the Garrison rod. Smooth semi-parabolic dry fly action. Very nice rod. When Mr. Duck's built his cane rods all cane was oven tempered in the culm, hand split, hand straightened and hand planed to exacting tolerances. Node spacing was a spiral pattern so that no section of a rod has nodes appearing on more than one flat and as far away from each other on adjecent flats. Mr. Duck hand made all his nickle silver slide bands and butt caps Then he would always use fiddle back, or Birdseye maple wood inserts. What great rods!
