Payne 200 Bamboo Rod 8' 3/2 #4


For sale here is a Payne Model 200 bamboo rod in very good and condition but missing one tip. I've been told it was made in the late 1930's. 8 feet, 3/2 for a DT4 line. Sold by retailer Clapp and Treat. The black ring on the grip was a hallmark of Clapp and Treat rods. Classic Payne dry fly action. Ferrules are size 9 and 14. Down-sliding cap and ring over spanish cedar insert. Very nice red agate stripping guide which, like the black ring around the grip, was probably a custom order from the retailer. No issues with the exquisite cane/node work. All wraps are in very good condition. Varnish in very good condition - no need for repair. The butt section ferrule may have been reset at one point but I cannot be sure. Original poplin bag and brass-capped aluminum tube. Comes with faded hang tag. Rod weighs 3.55 oz.

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.
