Inherited a couple rods, figured there might be a couple of you who could help with identifying them. Planning on bringing them to the local sports consignment shop unless they mean something to somebody.

First up is a 3 piece bamboo with extra tip section. Came in a brown cloth rod sock. Length 9'

Any help would be greatly appreciated, here's a bow I caught this week as a thank you for checking in

Looks like a Sport King, sold by Montgomery wards. Built by either Montague or Horrocks Ibbotson. Probably not worth a lot. 50 or less would be my guess. Did you inherit them from somebody that it would be worth keeping them?

I think Porter is right. Golden gate was a Wright and McGill rod. Looks like fiberglass.

If you want more info, the classic fly rod forum can help with the bamboo, and the fiberglass fly riders can help with the others. They’re good with history and values.
