A special edition, bamboo fly rod crafted by hand in our Manchester, Vermont, bamboo fly rod shop. This special edition Mitey Mite is made to the exact taper specifications of the original, first sold in Orvis catalogs more than 30 years ago. Plus, its hardware is upgraded with a smartly blued and hand-engraved nickel-silver sliding reel seat band which embellishes the Wes Jordan-model rods. Just 5 feet long, this 5-weight weighs in at a mere 2.2 ounces. But it possesses the same absolutely amazing crisp power as the original. It's perfect for delicate casts with tiny flies on small streams. Comes in its own special Wes Jordan-style tube with saddle-stitched russet leather and heavy-gauge aluminum protective liner. Includes an extra tip. Made in USA.
