If you're looking for a good, fish-able, vintage fiberglass fly rod than please check them out. I've gone over each one of them & made any small needed repairs. There's no worrying at all & you'll know that you're getting a rod in good condition ready to take fishing. These rods are fantastic for anyone wanting an extra rod to keep in your vehicle, or something that you can fish with when it's too cold outside for your bamboo rod. Maybe you're going to be in a harsh environment or are going fishing some place where you're worried about taking your "expensive" rod? Well, these fiberglass rods will allow you to use them in those nasty places & rough conditions while still getting the rod action you love so much from your other rods.
Also these older production fiberglass rods are just nostalgic for some of us. I grew up fishing with rods like these & I know that when I cast a line on one of them it takes me back to some good times & wonderful memories.
To sweeten the pot, I'll also throw in any of the reels I have listed in the "Available Accessories" page for an extra $10 when get one of these fiberglass rods. I've also made up rod tubes & bags to fit each rod exactly. The tubes & bags are color coordinated with the rod, making each one a little nicer offering overall. You won't have the rod sliding around inside the tube, like some of the pre-made commercial tubes.
Over all the well made production fiberglass fly rods from the 50's & later represent a great value for the angler. Their rod actions were based on more expensive bamboo rods, but they are not expensive at all. In fact, they have a better action than many of the newer production graphite rods on the market today, in my opinion. The real kicker is that these rods are about 10 times cheaper. Wow!!
