Payne 201 Fly Rod 8' 3/2 #5

A superb original condition Payne 201. Originally made in the late 1940's and went from the original purchaser to the current consignor. Uplocking screw lock with spanish cedar insert. Western style grip with little-to-no soiling. Brown wraps with yellow edges and an agate stripping guide. Oxidized ferrules with a microscopic amount of brassing on the ferrule welts. Ferrule plugs. Ferrules are tight and clean and the rod is straight. Rod action is an excellent medium crisp DF. Comes with the original tube, however the bag has no hanging tag and so may not be original. A very rare find in this condition.

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.
