EF Payne Model 222 Bamboo Fly Rod 11' 3/2 #8


A nice EF Payne model 222 salmon rod, 11', 3-piece, 2-tip, and built for what feels like a #8 line. The rod has had a nice refinish. Medium action. 13.3 ounces on my scale. Excellent varnish with brown wraps with yellow edges and purple bands at the keeper and male ferrule. One tip has a short clear wrap. #12 SRMC stripper and black snake guides. Oxidized step ferrules which fit snugly. The rod is very straight. The front grip is 8 1/4" long and shaped to a large cigar. The aluminum downlocking screwlock seat is stamped "Payne" along with the "Reg US Pat Off". The spacer is Spanish cedar. The lower grip has 5" of cork and 2" of aluminum that ends in a red rubber button. The aluminum has the "Sold by Abercrombie and Fitch, NY" stamp. The rod packs into a canvas overbag with a full size Payne rod tube holding the mid and tips. No hang tag.

Shipping Information
We ship at cost to the buyer and in the majority of cases do so via UPS with full insurance and signature. There are cheaper options but our experience has been that you get what you pay for and that it's not worth taking risks when shipping what are often one-of-a-kind items. Your shipping estimate will be calculated at checkout and if you have any questions please contact us. Please note the buyers are responsible for any applicable import duties or fees that may levied. Due to the importance of packing items carefully please allow up to two weeks for arrival (depending on how busy we are) though we certainly do our best to get items to you as expeditiously as possible.
Other Terms
Unless otherwise noted, all items come with a 3-day inspection period during which they can be returned to us for a full refund (provided that they are in the same condition in which they left our shop). Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. If an item is returned, we will issue a refund within 10 days upon receipt. Refunds will be either administered by providing a check or, when possible, by canceling a credit card purchase.
