Payne Model 208 Bamboo Rod 9' 3/2 #6


For sale here is an E.F. Payne Model 208 9′ 3/2 light dry fly bamboo rod for a #6 line. Sold by Abercrombie & Fitch. The rod is in excellent restored condition (or wraps have just faded and is orig.) with some light overall wear. All sections are full length with slight sets in the mid and one of the tips.

The wraps are chestnut brown with red tipping though the shades are so similar it is hard to distinguish. The winding check and male ferrules are tipped in red, gold, and purple though again the red and purple are difficult to distinguish from one another. (might be original and has faded considerably) Oxidized guides and hardware. Cigar grip 5 7/8" in length with moderate soiling. Cap and ring reel seat over a spanish cedar spacer. There is light wear to the spacer. The butt cap reads, "SOLD BY ABERCROMBIE & FITCH NEW YORK".

The ferrules are size 10/64 and 16/64 with an excellent fit. The rod weighs 4.90 oz. Includes a replacement bag and original tube with brass fittings. Though this rod has a few issues it is still a wonderful Payne deserving a good home.
