Default Hardy Hollokona Hollolight fly rod

I have in my collection a fly rod that I am looking for information on.

It is a 3 piece Hardy Hollokona Hollolight 8.6' fly rod with extra tip. It is made out of bamboo and has golden colored wraps with black trim. It looks to be in excellent condition and has the original Hardy case with 4 sections.

The serial number on the reel ring is H36059C.

Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Scoota

Don't know anything about it, but it sure is beautiful! I know there are several fourms out there dedicated to bamboo flyrods. I'd do a Google search and post the question on one of those. Someone here might have a link to a good fourm as well.

Good luck!

It is a complete fake prolly made in a Kerbleckistani sweat shop. . Please send it to me for proper disposal.

Nice rod.

I forget the name of the book, but if you go out on Amazon, there is a book specifically on vintage Hardy fly rods

I'm envious.

The rod was built in 1961, you can check it out at http://www.hardyandgreyscanada.com/content/view/5/15/
I will see if i can dig up anything else about the rod.

Whiskey Dick,
Thank you for the web site and information. It is very informative.
I got this fly rod from my Dad who recently passed away. He said an old timer from Sisters had given it to him . He also said that people out at the fly shop in Sisters may be very interested in it but I think it still holds to many memories for me to give it up.
Again, thanks for your help.
