Vintage Heddon Premier Model 115 Bamboo Fly Rod 8.5' 1 3/4f 3/2 Orig. Tube & Bag For Sale

Vintage Heddon Premier Model 115 Bamboo Fly Rod 8.5' 1 3/4f 3/2 Orig. Tube & Bag

Vintage Heddon Premier Bamboo Fly Rod # 115, 8' 6" 1 3/4F ferrule. 3/2 With Original Bag and TubeThis vintage bamboo rod was made by the Heddon Co to sell in Sear's Sporting Goods during 1948 to 1952. The writing on the rod reads "Heddon Premier #115 8 1/2' -1 3/4-F- HDH or E", in typical Heddon script writing. This rod is made in the much searched for and desired length 0f 8'-6, and in the taper and ferrule size of 1 3/4F which corresponds to 17/64 and 10.5/64 for a Light Trout Rod, according to Heddon nomenclature. This was the taper and ferrule size for a Light Trout Rod, typically a 4 to 5 weight rod. This rod is similar to the Model 20 with hand lapped, black japanned ferrules. I prefer this rod with a WF5F or a WF5F/S Sink Tip It has nicely tapered tips, a very responsive rod for dry flies, with power in the butt for sink tip lines, nymphing, and wet flies. The downlocking reelseat is in very good shape, made from red/brown Pyralin, with no bulging or melting of the pyralin threads. The hand welted, black japanned ferrules are in excellent shape, tight fitting, each pop on disassembling, all guides and wraps in excellent condition, antique gold silk with black tipped silk. The rod finish is in good shape, clear with no bag rash or finish melts. The handle is in good shape, normal wear from minimal use. This rod comes complete with original aluminum tube (missing the top) and bag with the proper labelc, a good example of the Post War Heddon Rod Co. bamboo rods. Any "bowing" in the pics are by my camera, the rod has all sections equal length, straight, one tip with a very slight set and the other with no set, and the guides and wraps are in good shape, no rust or missing guides. This rod is a beautiful example of the Heddon Rod Co. "The Rod With a Fighting Heart"This is a used rod, over 60 years old, it has the normal wear and tear of such a rod. I accept returns only if the rod doesn't meet the description and pictures. There is no examination period. The buyer will be responsible for shipping both ways and the cost of shipping will not be refunded. I suggest highly that you get insurance, estimated at an extra $5. Too many things happen to bamboo rods on transit, its only wise for the both of us to insure a rod that will be worth several hundred dollars. Please wait for an invoice before paying so that you are in agreement with shipping costs. Please feel free to ask me for what my estimated amount would be. International buyers, please ask for a shipping estimate as it will vary according to location. Also, please ask for any and all questions, pictures, or anything about condition so that you get a rod that you will be satisfied with upon receipt.
