Fly Rod bamboo reproduction of Payne teper 100 7'6' 2 pieces. Tail 4(1 TIP) no rod bag and no tube) This is one of my reproduction. I try to make ... moremore similar as possible to the original. This is not as the original but. Doing a teper very precise, the sensation is similar. It was build in 14/04/2012 The rod has a progressive action. It has a nice action. It has been used only a few times as you can see from the photos. I have a lot of rods(more than 50) and occasionally i sell someone. It is a gret satisfaction to know that my construiction travels in the world. I hope that whoever buys it feel the same feeling that i proved. Let me know if you have some question or some advice. For shipping: The rod is put in a PVC pipe and onto a cardboard tube. After the expedition i sent a code by which you can monitorate the rod. Which moreover is assured. Contact me for shipping costs.

This extraordinary fly rod was bought by my uncle in around 1956. He never used it! it was given to me years ago and I had it in my gun closet. Orvis ... moreImpregnated bamboo. Deluxe Style"Battenkill" 6 1/2 foot, 2 piece, 11 guides. Serial number 19049, Weight 2 oz. This rod has never been used, I don't even think its been put together. As you can see from the pics, the cork handle is light and has no signs of handling, which usually turns darker from human touch. It has 2 tips with it and is contained in a cotton plaid sheath and is placed inside an aluminum tube. The tube has the original tag on the outside. The tube and tag, as you can see, show some signs of wear from storage and moving it around. I was always going to fish with this rod. But couldn't bring myself to take it out to the stream.I really don't collect rods nor do I really need it anymore. I did some research and found its very rare to find one in unused condition. So heres your chance! Thanks for looking!

The Granger 8642's have got to be the most iconic western taper bamboo fly rod in history. I like them because they are very versatile and can cast in all situations including when the winds pick up and will fish a 5 or a 6. My story this past summer included my first outing with an 8642 Special and was 3 days on the B_r River in Montana. We fished the upper head waters for up to 16" Cutts and the Special was a ball. Then we fished lower. Larger waters for nice sized, hard fightin' bows. I could not believe that I was making 60' casts with a hopper in the wind. Later in the day I switched over to a nymph rig and was amazed at how well it could mend the line. I even fished streamers with the fear of nicking the rod but it performed flawlessly. Now I don't know about you, but that is the type of waters that I normally fish, ... moremuch more than the dainty little creeks. I am having a hard time fishing with graphite again! This rod is very nice. But has a couple of minor issues. One guide on the mid has been re-wrapped with the correct scarlet red. It was done nicely and other than it looking slightly newer than the rest of the wraps, you can hardly tell. One tip had a splinter on the top 6" and has been wrapped in clear. It is even hard to tell in the pics and should fish like the other tip, which is excellent. The finish on the rod is near flawless and shines like new. The pics show the condition of the grip and seat. Ferrules have a nice fit. Sock is original but the tube is a few inches longer than the rod. Shipping is $13.50 to the lower 48 On Dec-14-12 at 14:00:49 PST. Seller added the following information: International shipping is incorrect. To ship a package overseas of this size with insurance will cost around $50+ or- Sometimes Ebay fills in the blanks for you and I overlooked this one. They will not let me change it.

I have not been able to find out anything about Charles Grove. The maker. This 7 foot, 2 piece, 2 tip rod is beautifully designed and executed. The cork cigar grip tapers to a cork reel seat with two sliding rings. The cork has no chips or gouges. Both tip sections are 3/4" longer than the butt section, looks like the rod may have been built that way. All sections are essentially straight. The ferrules are"popping" tight. The female ferrule on the butt has a soldered ring welt. The stripper guide has an artificial agate liner. The snake guides are pristine, with transparent wraps. The rod is designed to cast a 4 weight line. I have not put a line on it but in flexing it feels like a good dry fly rod. This rod is in excellent condition. It comes with a cloth bag in a good quality aluminum tube.

Wright and McGill 7' 2/2 Granger Aristocrat vintage bamboo fly rod. Rod and case looks to be in excellent original conduction. This is a very sought after fly rod because of the 7 foot size and high quality make. I found in a garage sale and never fished with it. Has 2 tips. Sock and aluminum case with cap. On Dec-06-12 at 16:01:21 PST. Seller added the following information: Additional information about condiction: The varnish is perfectly smooth with no blemishes or checks. The wraps. Guides and ferrules are all solid and tight. I can see no noticeable sets. The rod sock shows no signs of use either. It is clean with no water spots, mildew or dirt stains. I believe this rod was used very little throughout its life. I purchased the rod at a garage sale from a man that found it in the back of a cabin closet 20 years earlier during some ... moreconstruction. It was given to him, and he said he might have used it a few times. I am not a bamboo fly rod expert, but I’ve read that a rod will over time develop casting checks at the ferrules, and I can see no sign of these checks anywhere in the varnish.
Factory sealed and mint condition! All original Wright& McGill Granger Deluxe bamboo fly rodnumber GD 9050! This is a 3 piece rod with one extra tip. 3/2. All 4 pieces are original and 36.5 inches in length. The original cloth sleeve and metal case areincluded. The paper label on the metalcase states the length is 9 ft. and 5 oz. weight.

It has sat unnoticed in my closet forover 30 years. I have been told that it wasproduced around 1950. Those of you morefamiliar with bamboo fly rods and the history of Granger rods will be able toestablish ... moremore from the pictures than I will ever know. This rod deserves a gentleman(or gentlewoman) who canappreciate it for what it is. Eitherbeing introduced to a favorite body of water.

This is an Abbey& Imbrie"Many Use" Split Bamboo Bait-Fly rod combination. The information on the original cloth carrying case has that information plus it says"Butt- 3" Joints( Extra tip, No. 3CC, Cork grip, 4-6 1/2, 9 ft( The cloth case has a couple of rips in it and some water marks. The pole fits neatly into a grooved core for safe keeping. I believe that A&I label was used from 1906-23. The rod is combination rod made by Montague in the early 1907-teens because of the reel seat and end plug, a variation of a 1907 patent. It is well over 100 years old and only had one owner. Please inspect all of the pictures carefully. I will accept any reasonable offers. Don't hesitate to email me if you have questions. Shipping is free. Thanks for looking!
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 Professional ID and Valuation Service This is NOT an Appraisal this service is limited to identifying the model. Age and value from The Monty Man for your Montague Fly Rod. Casting Rod or Bait Rod Whether it’s made of bamboo. Fiberglass, metal or wood You’ll find out: What you have. What it’s worth in today’s market. When it was built(approximately) Where it stacks up in the Montague line. Brief history of Montague Rod& Reel Company Do you own a Montague fishing rod. Or one you suspect is a Montague. But you want to know more about it? I CAN HELP! The problem is that most Montague rods cannot be identified by the average collector. And collecting is all about identification. Any antique that cannot be identified, has very little collectable value. In fact. Many early Montague rods(especially ... morefrom the Varney era) are mistaken for rods made by famous makers like Leonard, Edwards, Thomas, Payne, Orvis, and Landman. Who am I? I'm commonly called the Monty Man by avid collectors of vintage tackle. In addition to my addiction to vintage fly rods and reels. I'm an avid fisherman, fishing mostly with vintage bamboo rods and vintage reels. I spend an average of over 60 days a year on the water, chasing fish. So far this season(2012) I've caught and released over 450 fish on bamboo rods and vintage reels. All my trout fishing is done with vintage fly gear, but I'm not a fly fishing snob. I'll use other gear while chasing salmon and sturgeon on the big rivers and trolling the Sea of Cortez on a kayak. What are my qualifications? I've invested considerable time and effort documenting the entire line of Montague fishing rods. I have a collection of over 1.000 pages of vintage advertisements for Montague rods, spanning every era from 1855 through 1956. I've been providing professional appraisals of Montague rods for over 3 years. I currently own over 300 Montague fly rods. I've compiled a master list of Montague production rods. Including
Up for sale is a H L Leonard Model 36 7 1/2' 3/2. All the sections are full length. Straight and the furrels are tight. Rod comes with bag and original tube as seen in pictures. The rod has been refinished and is smooth with no cracks on the guide wraps. The rod is honey colored with red wraps and a honey wood colored reel seat. I fished both tips a handful of times lightly casting dries on Silver Creek in Idaho and surrounding waters, it fished great as a 3 weight for me. The reason I'm selling is just that, I don't use this enough and would prefer to invest in some photography gear. The one flaw is the rod has a 1/2' clear wrap on one of the two tips. I bought the rod this way and have fished it with no noticeable affects. This flaw can be seen in the photos located by the piece of black paper seen in the photos. I bought ... morethis rod quite a few years ago from Ron's Rods and Reels. If you have questions don't hesitate. Thanks for looking On Dec-14-12 at 16:14:28 PST. Seller added the following information: Update: Pictures Added I have added a few more pictures. One potential bidder asked about the clear wrap on the tip. He asked if it was a de-lamination? The tip has a loss of some bamboo on one of the flats. I tried to take a picture to show it as the wrap itself bends slightly because of the missing bamboo material.

A hardly used brass fly reel with the original finish. It is 2 1/2" diameter. And the spool is 1" wide. It weighs 6.3 oz. and will balance a 7 1/2' bamboo fly rod, and looks very graceful.

Just an amazing near mint 4 weight Model 237- L4 rod in all respects. Mario rods always amaze me in it overall balance and symmetry in building his fine works of art. This rod is from the days of collaboration with Scott Rod Co. His six-sided rods are generally of the progressive tapers style and all hollow built. Made in the manner reminiscent of the bridge construction with the percentage of the wood removed from the apex of every strip. The blank then looses about a third of its weight. This makes for a very light rod smooth medium fast dry fly rod. Just a beautiful rod with medium straw colored blank and translucent gold silk wraps. Guides are made of bright chrome and has short super Z ferrules covered in gold tread. Wood spacer is made of cypress wood with bight nickel silver sliding band and butt cap with modified cigar grip Mario ... moreWojnicki signed rod sock and old style rod tube. Rod was built in 1987.

Offered for sale is this near new cane rod from Scott. It is a 6'11" 4 weight rod. It was purchased this year brand new and has been fished approximately 20 times. This rod was made by Eden Cane rod builder Bernard Ramanauskas. It features his hollow built butt section. Swelled butt, node stabilization(Bernard's own way of stabilizing the dead sections of the bamboo to create continuos power fibers) It comes with two tips, rod sock, warranty card and aluminum rod tube. Scott has announced that after it sells through current inventory. Its relationship with Bernard will end and all new Scott cane rods will be made by a new maker yet to be announced. Bernard's rods from his own Eden Cane company sell for close to $4,000. This is an opportunity to own a rod from Bernard, a master cane builder, at a fraction of the price. If ... moreyou could find this rod new, it sells for $2,950 + tax. This rod is very zippy and throws wonderful loops even in a little bit of wind. It is really the ideal dry fly rod for any cast up to 35-40 feet for most anglers. It has the ability to throw much further. But of course that depends on the caster. Thanks for looking, Jason.
Garrison's famous 5 weight taper. 7'9' in length is arguably the most desirable trout rod ever made. I have attempted to convey the Garrison's look and feel with the use of genuine new old stock Super Z ferrules, stamped with the famous logo and the Pearl River NY address of the earliest ones. Garrison node stagger, guide spacing and guide sizes. I use Snake Brand bronze finish snakes and tip top with a carbaloy strip guide. Flor grade cork grip is to Garrison's dimensions. Reel seat hardware is fashioned by Joe Arguello, a noted Colorado bamboo rod maker. Silk wraps throughout, all conveying Garrison's spartan style. The rod is finished with varnish.The second pictures shows a small glue line that has no effect on the rods integrity. Check my feedback on other bamboo rods I have sold. I hand split, heat treat and ... morehand plane all of them in my workshop using Demarest od Royer culms. Rod will be shipped with cloth bag as shown in an aluminum rod tube.

3 nice fly rods. LM Dickson 3 pc. bamboo rod. I believe it's a 6-7 wt. The name Amos has been lightly carved into the cork handle. I have been lazy about it. And haven't sanded it out. I do that for you if you want. The graphite rod is a Reliance 8" 6-7 wt. The Ted Williams rod is an 8"6" 8 wt. fiberglass rod. My grandfather taught my brother and I how to fly fish on one of these rods. Still a great rod to fish with. Thanks!

Today I purchased this Phillipson Paragon fly rod at an estate sale. I don't know really anything about it other than I have read that they fish very well. And I know they were made in the fifties. This is a 3 section 8 1/2' 5 HDH. It also has what looks like a small b with an 8 in front of the length designation. It is in very good overall condition for the age, and does not appear to have any real damage or problems other than very minor scuffs and scratches. It was obviously owned by someone who liked to use it, and it has been well used, but probably has a lot of life left in it. The ferrules seem tight, all the guides are still tightly wrapped, and I do not see any cracks or repairs. I can send better pics too if any one is interested in seeing it in a close up shot with better light. Thanks for looking!

VERY NICE 1967 ORVIS SUPERLIGHT SPINNING BAMBOO FISHING ROD SEPTEMBER 11. 1967 MASTER ROD BUILDERS GEORGE REID AND BILL YOUNG BUILD BARGAIN TIME O ffered was an Exquisite Orvis Spinning Two Piece Aged Tonkin Cane with Full Train of Etna Double Footed Guides. The Stripping Guides and been replaced with the Correct Size Etna Guide. George Reid/ Bill Young'Collaboration Built. As it was customarily done by Orvis and other Well Known Rod Makers. The Collaborative build became the industry standard in that fly rods could be built faster in which to meet large demands while allowing Two Sets of Very Trained Eyes Judge the Work to be released to a Very Fussy Clientele. On September 11. 1967 Master Rod Builders George Reid and Bill Young completed the rod now offered. Looking very much like it did some 45 plus years ago, the Superlight has been ... morethe victim of a car window. Originally 6' 2 Piece Ultra Light for those of us that like to go'Light lining' and fish anywhere from 1 1/2 Pound Test up to 3 1/2 pound test. In Most Cases, Broken Tip Rods are pretty much worthless and don't fish properly. The Fact that this started out as a 6 Foot Superlight and has is no approximately 5' 6" Vs 6' has actually only taken the rod to the next level of Ultra Light Rods. I took it out and put it up against my Mint Superlight with 4 Pound Test, Both Rods using an Orvis 50A with Daiwa Steez 4 pound test line. The Rod offered Felt Very Much Like. When you loose the tip on a Heavy or Heavier Rod well it's pretty much shot, but when you loose the tip on a Whippy Super Ultra Light, you end up with basically a Light Weight better suited for lines between 3 1/2 and 6 Weight. The Rod Cast without any weird feelings or action and while tossing lures to some of our Big Bass on the South West side of the lake where the Big Bass tend to back up into their holes and Waite for what ever the next Qualified Meal might be, I had no problem having them take my Tied Crayfish.

AT AUCTION. NO RESERVE: This is a one-of-a-kind E. C. Powell hand-built split bamboo fly rod in almost-new condition. This would be the crown jewel in any collection. First, the basic description, according to the owner: This fly rod was built around 1945 by E. C. Powell for my great uncle, Joe McMullen, who fished with Mr. Powell. I can guarantee that it was built by Mr. Powell himself. As a kid, I fished with"Uncle Joe" and E. C. Powell's son, Clyde Powell, at the Sizemore Ranch near Meeker, Colorado. Uncle Joe left this rod to me, and it's been put away since then. The rod itself is a model B-9, 9 1/2 footer and would have been used primarily for steelhead, Patent Number 9132986. The kit is complete and includes three tips-another distinguishing feature of this particular rod-and the original cloth bag, and the original ... morealuminum case. I have been in contact with the E. C. Powell Fly Fishers Club regarding this particular rod, and my asking price is based on research and correspondence with the Club. Two of the tips are 47 1/2 inches long; the third is 57 1/2 inches long. The two 47 1/2 inch tips are of two different thicknesses. Engraved in the bottom of the reel seat is 4 1/2. Perhaps the line weight used by Mr. McMullen. A rod like this does not come up for sale very often. In any condition. This rod is pristine. There are no nicks or marks on the reel seat, the cork handle looks new, the wraps are all tight and solid, the varnish is clear and smooth, and all the parts you could ask for are there. An additional note on my feedback rating: I just noticed that my feedback approval rating is at 0 percent. Please note that this rating is the result of the fact that I did not trade on ebBay for a year. And the feedback rating only reflects the past year's transactions. If you read my feedback, you'll see that I had a 100 percent positive feedback score before the change.

This is a nice vintage bamboo fly rod by Kingfisher. It is a 9ft rod 3-piece with an additional tip section. The rod is all original, in good condition with no missing parts and is very straight. The original Kingfisher label is in good condition depicting the Kingfisher bird. This came from an estate and I really don't know any other details. I do believe it is a very good price as I am not a collector.

Decided to let go of another rod. It is a vintage rod with no makers marking other than the signature wrap. Have been told that it could be an early high end Montague from the 1920s. But that's just an opinion. I haven't fished this rod or cast it so don't know the line weight, but would guess it to be a 4 or 5wt. I have the original bag and tube, but the tube is missing the cap. I'm pretty sure the finish has been redone by a previous owner. It's a three piece 9 1/2' all the sections are full length. Bamboo has the mottled flamed appearance. The two tips are wrapped differently photo 11 shows it best. one tip has a wider wrap of green& red which I assume one is for wet fly and the other is for dry fly. The different wrapping lets you know which tip your using. The tube has Edwards written on it maybe a previous ... moreowner.

This is for a vintage Bamboo fly rod. The rod is 4 pc I think it is 2 ends and the middle and handle. i dont know anything about rods but this one looks very nice and well made. I can not find a name anywhere on this rod. Maybe the red handle will give it away to someone but I dont know. There is 2 problems with the rod. The first is the one end that connects the rod is detached(See Pic) and the other is the one tip on the one end is missing. The finish on the rod is very shiny and nice. The red paint where the reel attaches dont even look scratched. Bid with confidence on this very nice rod. Thanks for looking. Merry Christmas. Powered by The free listing tool.

Lightly used Bamboo ferruled Fly rod. I used this a couple times in the fall and in the winter months for steel head coming off lake huron into the tribs. Great rod no flaws. No glue marks no problems. I prefer making these now then ever. Last year and this year I have developed a proper taper for these rods so alot of time care and math went in to this. Because with these Bamboo ferrules its hard to just pluck an existing taper, say an old orvis or payne taper and make it into a Bamboo ferruled rod, action was intended for rods with a metal ferrule. Which ofcourse has a downside itself mainly it created a dead spot/ stiff spot above and below the metal ferrule thats where they break usually. But with the bamboo ferrules(B.F's) there is no dead spot, no metal/ transfer of energy between materials, So it is in all since the B.F rods act ... morein the same action as a one piece rod. with the great advantage of breaking down rather then trying to travel with a 6 or 7 foot one piece rod. But any how. With out giving away my tapers, i do have all other spec's for the rod, so here it is: 100% hand milled not by a machine, Hollow built construction. Blonde rod. The B.F's are hand milled out from the swells from the last station by hand( razorblade) to fit exact, no looseness of failier when fishing, I also pre waxed them. they fight very tight. On my taper there is a large increase of slope in the butt section with additional huge swells above the grip, for extra power and flashiness. Thread work is all 100% silk and in red with black frames, aditional the B.F's are clear wraps with a clockwise twist underneath the clear thread. i do this now to all my rods signature wise, and also because after several with the B.f's the same colour as the thread work I fount its just too much colour/ and more distracting as a solid colour) So with the clear its more natural and asteticly pleasing that does not distract too much. also on this there are intermediat wrapps between the guides as well. Its stagered 3x3 for nod
