E.F. PAYNE 9' BAMBOO ROD...$1,700 SOLD

This is an early E.F. Payne Highland Mills rod exquisitely restored by Steve Blake in 2012. The rod features a bright cap and ring reel seat with Payne roll stamp, full intermediate wraps, agate stripper, blued steel American twist snakes, and agate tip-tops. The machined ferrules and tube cap have a slight waist. Ferrules measure 18/64" and 11/64". This is a delicate rod, well-suited to light line, perhaps a 5wt silk (or Sylk).
