Love for Vintage Grizzly Fenwick Topwater SC622 - Fall Gear, 2012

It's getting harder to find these beauties...

This is my second Grizzly Fenwick SC622 but first modeled in the 1980's.  The distinguished brown blank that became the norm for fiberglas rods in the 80's came after the traditional yellow/honey blank.
The dark contrast made it possible to have brighter contrast thread-work and a different SC622.
5 guides + tip and traditional ferrule built for pistol grip handles such as Featherweight Champion out of Glendale, California this setup is reminiscent of ones that have been forgotten stateside.

A banner rod not-for-collection rather to be put to work.
