Heddon #35 Peerless 8' 5wt 1 3/4F Bamboo Rod


For sale here is a Heddon - #35 Peerless 8' 5wt 3/2 bamboo rod - 1 3/4 F. The rod is in very good+ restored condition. The restoration was performed by Fred Kretchman. The original writing on the rod couldn't be saved. There are small chips and scrapes in the varnish throughout the rod. The hood on the reel seat is a bit loose, this does not hinder use though. Lastly, there are fishing sets in both tips.

The rod is tempered to a dark pumpkin color with golden copper colored wraps and black tipping. Blued guides and ferrules. The rod features a handsome, dramatically swelled butt. Unique, u-shaped hook-keeper. The reverse half-wells grip is slightly ridged. Up-locking, screw lock reel seat with a wood spacer and classic bakelite screw thread and butt cap. There is some wear to the black paint on the seat and also slight wear to the butt cap. The ferrule fit is excellent. Includes wooden ferrule plugs made by Kretchman. The rod weighs 4 1/4 oz. The action is a very smooth medium-fast. Quite a versatile rod. Includes replacement satin bag and original tube.

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.
