1596. Winchester 8' 6" Fly Rod

375.00

3-piece, 1 tip, bag and tube. I think this rod was sold with one tip, evidenced by the bag—it has only 3 compartments. A 2 tip rod would have 4 compartments. This rod was made from 1919 to 1924. During this time Winchester owned the Edward Rod Company. After 1924 the Edward family got the rod shop back and continued making rods under the Edwards name. This rod is in exceptionally good condition. It has the best label I have ever seen. Most of the labels just in front of the handle are destroyed from the fisherman using bug dope. The tip is 1 1/4" short. The rod cast a WF 6 real nice on the lawn. This is a real nice piece of American rod making history to collect or use.
