WALTON POWELL BELMONT PERIOD 8’ BAMBOO TROUT ROD...$950 $825 SOLD

This is a superb Walton Powell Belmont rod, probably built in 1948. Rod is all original with tung oil finished cane, green wraps, and the correct red anodized "Featherweight" reel seat. Bag is original and tube is a later Walton Powell replacement. Ferrules are 13/64" and total rod weight is 3 7/8 ounces. Condition is immaculate with some soiling of the cork and a slight fishing set on one tip. This is a fine rod for a 5wt, casting a tight, driving loop. The original owner’s name is engraved on the butt cap. He was Anson Brooks, a well-known steelhead maestro and fly tyer from Seattle.
