This was followed by a cane/glass combination with enormous lifting power. The cane tip used on that model was taken from the 130 gr. all cane dry fly distance rod with which the great Albert Goddard reached 150'.

SAM CARLSON - MAKER, Offered here is an absolutely stunning example of "Sam Carlson's work, in the form of a 7 1/2', 2 pc. rod built in 1977. Rarely does the opportunity come along to acquire an un-fished rod of this vintage and pedigree.This rod has been in the original owner's hands from the time it was purchased and reportedly has been lawn cast once or twice, which accounts for the ever-so-slight grip soiling, but never fished. Rod is 100% in every way - ferrule fit, varnish, bluing on harware etc. with no outward appearance or signs of wear anywhere and it just glistens. The maroon wraps are a bit washed out in the photos and are actually quite a bit darker. 
Rod has a very pleasing med/fast action for a #5 line and comes in original bag and aluminum case with Carlson card affixed as a label. Included with the rod, is a period Carlson Rod Co. catalog that has been in the hands of the original owner with the rod for the past 37 years. $8200.
