Default Re: Is there a Fly Rod that you wouldn't part with?

Just two - and no one would want them anyway they are so used! I built them both in grad school in Tennessee. An 8.5 foot 8wt Orvis "Powerhouse" and an 8', 6wt Orvis. Both are the old unsanded blanks, are incredibly slower than anything I have today (mostly Loomis NativeRun GLX's), and are a mess. The corks look like the oil changers at Midas used them to wipe their hands on.

But I still use them on occasion, and they're quite comfortable hanging around right where they are.
