Heddon 35

0214: Heddon 35, 2-1/2F, Varnished 6-strip bamboo flyrod. 9-1/2', 3/1, for #6/7 line. 6.4 oz. Slide band down-locking full nickel silver reelseat. Very good 5-1/2" 'bottle style half-wells, stabilized solid cork grip. Good fitting, bright nickel-silver rolled-welt ferrules function well. Bronzed-steel snake guides, nickel silver stipper guide with agate insert and an agate-insert tiptop also in nickel-silver. Wrapped in tan tipped chestnut, mid-butt medalion as issued. No hook-keeper, with correct wound-over winding check. New replacement bag with my tag. A sturdy aluminum storage case replaces the, long ago lost, cardboard tube.

Butt and mid joints are proper length, the tip joint is down about 1-1/2-inch short due to tip-top replacement. This professionally refinished rod has the renowned Heddon "Browntone" cane with new spar varnish. No model data markings on the shaft as issued circa 1924. The butt cap is prominently stamped with the "Heddon" script as shown in the photo. This was the only means of identification at the time save for the label on the cardboard storage tube. Excellent bamboo with no splits or cracks and very straight. The comfortable Heddon bottle-style half-Wells cork grip has been stabilized.

Here's a chance to add a veteran Heddon "Bass, or Heavy Trout" rod to your collection. Seldom seen early model in very nice refinished condition. Excellent. $195
