WALTON POWELL 7' 8" ROD...$750 SOLD

Walton Powell made this rod in the 1950s after his return to Chico, CA, from his first rod shop in Belmont, CA.  This rod is in excellent original condition with the Powell family tung oil finish on the cane and aluminum up-locking reel seat.  All cane, wraps, ferrules, guides are excellent. Some soiling on the cork.  Ferrules are 14/64" and rod weight is 3 ¾ ounces.  The rod comes with serviceable replacement bag and tube.  This is a fine rod to cast with a 4wt or a 5wt.  The action is crisp and sure.  It throws a tight loop at intermediate distances, and will reach out when asked.
