For sale here is a 9' 3/2 E.C. Powell bamboo rod made circa 1939. A or B taper rod. It's referred to by E.C. Powell as an excellent dry fly rod. The action of the rod is medium fast and it throws a six weight line best. One tip is one inch shorter than the other sections. The full length tip could be a Powell or Maslan replacement since a) the cane is a bit lighter in color, b) the wraps are of a slightly different brown, and c) the ferrule isn't oxidized in the same manner as the other sections. The rod weighs 4.8 oz. Ferrules are 18/64 and 11/64 and the tips tops are 5/64 on the short tip and 4/64 on the full length tip. Original bag and tube. There is no script on the rod and no hook keeper. Interesting letters of correspondence between ECP and owner will be included with the sale.
