Heddon Model #8 1 1/2F bamboo rod

SKU: VFT12738

For sale here is a very nice Heddon in a very usable size. This is a Heddon #8 in the 8' 3/2 configuration for a 5wt line. This is the sought after 1 1/2 ferrule size model. The rod is in extremely nice shape and still retains the "Spiros San Fransisco" label from the store where it was sold, a very nice casting all-around rod. There is a very minor click in the first ferrule from wood shrinkage as the rod spent a number of years in Colorado's dry climate. This probably won't be a problem but it would be a very easy fix by a competent restorer. For that reason I am offering the rod at a low price of $350.00 plus shipping. The bag and tag are original but the tube is a period replacement and just slightly long. A fine rod at a good price.
