    Have a vintage split bamboo fly rod I picked up at auction last summer. It is an 8wt, appears to be custom built with the owners name on the rod and includes two tips, one of which is missing the tip-guide. Rod has some wear on cork and throughout the bamboo. The fact that it is an 8wt and could handle a steelhead is what attracted me to it. Only casted in the backyard with it. It would be a beautiful rod with someone who would have a classic reel to match. I wanted to refurbish/clean it up but there are too many home projects going on at the moment.

    Bought at auction for $50. Looking to sell for $50.00 including shipping Con-US but will also consider trade for recurve bow or older trout click prawl reel. Pictures listed below. Please contact me if interested or have questions.
