Heddon lists this rod as "Regular Bass or Dry Fly Trout" action. The beautiful browntone cane has a new UV protective spar varnish finish. A beautiful example of a vintage Heddon #10 split-bamboo fishing rod. The name "Heddon" spirals up the shaft, while the rod data markings run axially up the shaft indicating that this rod was likely produced in the late 1930s to early 1940s. This rod could easily fit into a fine Heddon rod collection, or better yet, work a trout stream. Professionally refinished to excellent condition. $255
