This beautiful "Regular Bass or Dry Fly Trout" rod has new UV protective spar varnish finish. A beautiful example of a Heddon #10 split-bamboo fishing rod. The "Heddon" name spirals up the shaft while the model number is simply marked, #10, ahead of the hook keep windings. This suggests that this rod was likely produced in the early to mid 1930s. This rod could easily fit into a fine Heddon rod collection, or better yet do battle with some smallmouth bass on your favorite stream. Professionally refurbished to excellent condition. $275
