  • Additional Product Notes

    This fly rod has a great traditional dry fly action displaying a smooth curve in both forward and back casts. A real pleasure for light action fly fishing for trout!

    Just a little history on this McFarland design: This rod blank design dates back to around 2012 when McFarland Rod Co. in PA first created this lay-up design . It got the name "Dirty Martini" from the glass material that was used to make the blank which had a slight olive-green tint similar to the colors of a "Dirty Martini". This blank was made in 2023 with the same type of fiberglas material that was used in the 2012 creations.

    Each ferrule location has a set of alignment dots to aid in quick assembly when you are at the water's edge and time is ticking away!!

     

  • RETURN & REFUND POLICY

    RETURNS for CUSTOM FLY RODS:  Fly rods ordered that are to be heavily customized with special reel seats, exotic woods, unique guides systems, or thread color schemes or snake skins, cannot be returned or funds refunded for obvious reasons. It will very well be a beautiful creation but it may not be desired by someone else. So purchase responsibly with this in mind as no returns will be accepted at any time after the order is finalized and work begun. 

     

    RETURNS  of ONE-of-a-KIND, as-built Fly Rods:   On occasion I will have various models of high quality fly rods available that will be for sale "as built" for immediate shipment, such as the fly rod shown above. This rod may be returned if the customer feels it is not exactly what he or she wants as long as it is returned in the same packaging, rod case, and still in the new and unused condition in which it was received by the customer.  Rod returns for this reason must be post marked for return mailing within a 10-calendar day time frame from the customer's initial receipt of the rod. Customer will be responsible for the return Shipping, Handling & Insurance sufficient to cover the replacement of the fly rod. The rod will be inspected and compared to the photographs taken prior to shipment and any adjustments will be made prior to the monetary refund.  PLEASE request that a signature be required on my end when returning a rod to me for a refund. Without this requirement, I cannot be responsible for lost shipments.  Monetary refunds for returned rods will not include the Shipping, Handling & Insurance costs incurred for the shipment back to me.  Refunds will be sent by mail in the form of a Cashiers Check made out to the original purchaser.  

    PLEASE MAKE CONTACT WITH ME BY TEXT OR PHONE CALL PRIOR TO RETURNING A ROD SO I CAN BE EXPECTING THE SHIPMENT.  Contact information is listed below:
