Orvis Battenkill Bamboo Fly Rod 7 1/2' 2/2 HDG (6) S/N#46661. According to the Orvis database, this rod was finished 3/1/1967 by rod makers George Reed and Bill Young.
This rod is a two piece two tip rod with 12/64 ferrules. Sections are straight and in very good condition. Ferrules fit and "pop" when separated. The cork grip is clean without damage but has some slight ridging which does not affect usability. The rod sock and tube appear original.
You can see the serial number on the tube through the label wear. I last used this rod on the Farmington River in September 2020 where I picked up two very nice Farmington brown trout. I matched it with a Wulff BB5F bamboo special long belly line.
Very nice casting and playing the fish. You'll be glad you did. The item "Orvis Battenkill Bamboo Fly Rod 7 1/2' 2/2 S/N#46661. Great Rod" is in sale since Friday, June 4, 2021.
