As I say, sometimes the rods we value & love the most aren't the rods that command high prices on the collectibles market. That's okay. A mass-produced Montague fly rod that sold in a hardware store back in 1943 probably isn't worth a whole lot of money. But if it was your Dad or Grandpa that bought the rod, used it when they took you fishing all those times, & passed it down to you - then (to you) that rod is priceless.
HERE is a wonderful article discussing this. If you own a "priceless" rod, take a moment to read it. I'm sure you'll agree, some rods are worth more than money.
