Heddon Model #50 Deluxe President 8 1/2' Bamboo Rod
From the estate of author, fishing guru, and winner of the Buz Buszek award, Andre Puyans:
For sale here is a Heddon #50 Deluxe President -- 8’6” 3/2 with 2F for a 5 or 6 weight line. The rod weighs 5.45 oz. Gold wraps with green tipping at guides, HK & ferrules, modified cigar grip, screw down locking reel seat with walnut spacer. Original bag and tube. Very difficult Heddon model to find in all original unaltered condition, especially since so many Heddon rods suffered from varnish issues. The varnish on this rod shows age as well, but it's imminently fishable as is.
