Payne Model 200 Fly Rod 8' 3/2 #4/5


An EF Payne model 200 fly rod, 8', 3-piece, 2-tip, built for what feels to me like a #5 line or perhaps even a #4. Medium semi full-flexing action. Refinished condition. Light chestnut colored cane with an agate stripper and bronze snake guides. Wrapped brown with yellow edges and a band of maroon at the keeper and male ferrules. One tip has been wrapped in a brown that has perhaps a touch less red shade to it but is so close to the original that it's almost an identical match. The ferrule fits are excellent and the upper ferrule is a #9 and the butt/mid a #15. The grip is a 6" long western style and has been cleaned. The spacer is walnut with an uplocking screw lock with a hidden pocket cap under the heel. The nut is stamped "Payne in a cartouche and "Reg. U.S. Pat. Off." underneath. "Sold by, Von Lengerke & Antoinne, Chicago" is stamped on the reverse. Comes in an original bag with hang tag and brass cap tube with the Payne sticker (the felt in the cap has been replaced). A very nice refinished version of this versatile Payne model.
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.
