PAYNE 8' 6" BAMBOO FLY ROD...$1,800 SOLD

This is a Payne 206, 8' 6" rod restored by Darryl Whitehead and unused since. The rod weighs 5 1/8 ounces and the ferrules are 17/64" and 11/64". This is a robust rod, best with a 6wt. Very satisfying to cast on a windy day. Features up locking aluminum reel seat over cedar, marked to Abercrombie and Fitch, floppy ring hook keeper, Perfection stripper, blued or bronzed American twist snakes, blued NS ferrules, correct replacement bag and brass-capped tube. Workmanship on the restoration is excellent. This would be a wonderful rod for heavy trout with ability to reach out while retaining the control that makes Payne rods so desirable.
