I came across a Fenwick Safari pack rod in a local antique shop and was intrigued enough to take it home. I need to get some more photos but for now I just have this one of it in the travel case.

The rod is a six foot six piece fly spin rated for a 6wt fly line. I think the model is SF60-6. It has the original pamphlet and appears to have seen little use.

Wondering if anyone else on the forum has one? They seem pretty rare.

Yes, please let us know how it does. Conventional wisdom is that a spin/fly combo does neither well, but maybe this one will. It would be very convenient if so.

wow that's pretty.. never seen a SF60-6 before.

I have two SFs, the 75-5 is a decent fly rod, the 70-4 not so much. I'll be interested to get your take on this one.
