This listing is for one of the most unusual and neatest antique fishing rods I have ever come across! Check out the handle on this rod, 4 sides, all 4 with different intricate inlaid/wood marquetry designs. Whoever made this rod had some serious talent! This 3 piece with extra tip rod comes in an early form rod case, which is heavily worn. The reel seat does have some surface wear on it, it is not marked, with the exception of a monogram in script lettering F.L.T. Perhaps someone will recognize the reel seat and be able to attribute that portion of the rod to a maker. The handle features 4 different marquetry patterns, each of them intricate in their own right. The rod has some missing wraps, a few missing guides, some wraps with wear, general use/age wear that you find in these antique rods. The handle section measures 40" mid section is 40.25"both tips are 40". The handle section is actually two toned wood, pretty unique! Ferrules seat and unseat, could use a cleaning for easier seating purposes. I really love this antique fly rod, I have never seen anything quite like this rod before!
