Payne Model 209 Bamboo Rod 9' 3/2 #6/7


For sale here is an E.F. Payne Model 209 -- 9′ 3/2 dry fly bamboo rod for a #6/7 line. The rod is in excellent refinished condition with a few cosmetic issues. At some point someone attempted to touch up the casting cracks causing the varnish to bleed under the crack. Also, the bluing on the butt-section female ferrule and the mid-section male ferrule has been re-applied and appears darker than the remaining of the blued hardware components. All sections are full length and straight. Reel seat hardware is stamped "Sold by Abercrombie and Fitch New York". Up-locking reel seat over a Spanish cedar spacer. The seat and spacer are in wonderful condition though there is one light scratch in the spacer. Wraps are chestnut brown with red tipping, with red and gold tipping at the winding check. The original 209 models featured red, gold, and purple tipping at the winding check and male ferrules. Handsome matte varnish finish. The grip has been cleaned and is slightly ridged. The ferrules are size 11/64 and 17/64 with an excellent fit. The rod weighs 6 1/2 oz. Includes original bag and tube. This rod is ready to fish and does not require any repairs.
