Payne Bamboo Fly Rod 8'6" 3/2 #6/7


A nice EF Payne fly rod, 8'6", 3-piece, 2-tip, built for a #6 or #7 line. One tip is 1 1/4" short. Refinished condition. 5.0 ounces. 1960's vintage with the "Made for Abercrombie & Fitch" stamp. Powerful medium fast action. Good refinished condition with hard varnish. Some abrasion from shooting the line has been covered over in the refinish. This rod could use some straightening as there are sets in the upper mid and both tips. Ferrule oxidation is 100%. The 6" long western-style grip has been cleaned but has not suffered any cork erosion. The reel seat is an uplocking screwlock with a Spanish cedar insert. The stamp on the nut is "Payne" in a cartouche and "Reg US Pat Off". As noted previously, it also has the 1960's A&F stamp. The ferrule fits are a bit tight and could use some cleaning. The rod comes with original ferrule plugs, original bag (alas no hang tag) and the original tube.
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.
