Rare E.c. Powell 7-1/2 Ft. Cane Fly Rod Two Tip Sections Tube Case Maslan Era For Sale

Rare E.c. Powell 7-1/2 Ft. Cane Fly Rod Two Tip Sections Tube Case Maslan Era


Up for sale is a very rare and desirable 7-1/2 ft. long cane fly rod from the E.C. Powell Rod Co. in Marysville, California, from the "Maslan" era, pre-1960 when he began putting the E.C. Powell name on the shaft rather than on the aluminum butt. We have discovered that Tony Maslan was an assistant builder, and son-in-law to E.C. Powell. Since the early 50's, he continued to build these hollow built rods on the same equipment after the retirement of E.C. Powell.


Not sure of the wt. but probably #4 or #5. It bears the E.C. Powell stamp on the butt cap (see close-up picture). It has an extra tip section. All sections appear to be in excellent condition and we have included a number of close-up pictures to show this. Also includes three-pocket cloth carrier sleeve and aluminum tube with screw top at one end. It is signed on the rod "Ann Granger" near the grip and her name is also etched on the outside of the aluminum tube and appears to read: "Dr. A.S. Granger, Los Angeles, Calif." See pictures. We are NOT experts on old rods but understand that the "Granger" name is also associated with classic old fly rod making. We do not know if the name on the rod and tube is related to the rod making Granger. If not, it would seem an odd coincidence. Also on the rod near the grip is, "Pat. No. 1932986." We have found records of what was a similar but later rod with the same patent number that sold on for over $1500 in 2011.

Please ask questions or for more pictures. Shipping includes insurance and is higher to Canada. Thanks for looking. If anyone can supply more information on this old rod, please do and we will post it. Thanks for looking.

PLEASE NOTE: A FELLOW ER AND SOMEONE MUCH MORE KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT OLD FLY RODS THAN US HAS POINTED OUT THAT ONE OF THE WRAPS (AT THE THE THIRD GUIDE ON ONE OF THE TIPS IS DARKER AND MAY BE A REPLACEMENT. UPON EXAMINATION, IT DOES APPEAR DARKER AND FEELS DIFFERENT THAN THE OTHERS. IT IS COVERED WITH VARNISH. PLEASE offer ACCORDINGLY. AS WE SAID IN THE LISTING, WE ARE NOT EXPERTS ON OLD FLY RODS. THANKS FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.

On May-01-13 at 10:00:31 PDT, seller added the following information:

PLEASE NOTE: AN INTERESTED ER ASKED ABOUT TOTAL WEIGHT OF THE ROD (WITH ONE TIP SECTION) TO ASSESS WHETHER IT IS HOLLOW OR SOLID. WE TOOK THE ROD TO A LOCAL SHIPPING CENTER AND THEIR MAIL SCALE MEASURES IT OUT A VERY LIGHT 3.2 OZ. WHICH WE WOULD PRESUME SUGGESTS THAT IT IS HOLLOW. AGAIN, WE ARE NOT EXPERTS IN THESE RODS, BUT WANTED TO SHARE THIS NEW INFORMATION.
