Payne, E.F. – Model 204L

  • For your consideration is a Payne model 204L bamboo fly rod. This is an 8' 6" 3/2 4wt weighing 4.25 oz. All sections are full length and straight.

    This rod features medium tempered cane with Payne dark brown wraps tipped yellow. Oxidized guides accompanied by a red agate stripping guide. Payne style grip measures 6 1/4" in length. Classic cap and ring with original bluing over a beautifully modeled wood spacer. Ferrules are 13/16 with a perfect fit. In my hand, the action is on the medium side of medium-fast and buttery smooth. Steve Blake rewrapped and gave this new varnish. Everything else is original –cork, bamboo, bluing throughout, and hardware. Includes the original bag and tube.
