EF Payne Fly Rod 9'6" 2/2 #8/9


An EF Payne bamboo fly rod, 9'6", 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for what feels to me like a #8 or #9 line. 6.7 ounces. A 1950's rod with a perfection stripper and "Sold by Abercrombie and Fitch" die stamp. Fast action rod. Near mint condition having seen little use. Medium flame cane with brown wraps with purple edges on all an extra yellow, purple, at the keeper and male ferrule. Perfection stripper and bronze snakes with minimal wear. The varnish is excellent with no chips and just a few minor rubs. The rod is pin straight and the ferrule fits are tight. The ferrule oxidation is 99% intact. The grip is 6 1/2" long and shaped to a western profile, having never been sanded or cleaned. The aluminum downlock seat has "Payne" in a cartouche and the "Reg US Pat Off" stamp. The nickel silver pocket cap has the "Sold by Abercrombie & Fitch, New York" stamp. Spanish cedar spacer. The rod comes with a non-original fighting butt (not pictured) and packs into the original bag with 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.
