For your consideration is a rare E.F. Payne Parabolic bamboo fly rod. This is a 7' 9" 2/2 5wt. weighing 3.875 oz. All sections are full length and straight.
This rod features medium tempered cane with chestnut brown wraps and gold tipping. The Payne Parabolic all cork grip is soiled and remains fairly smooth. Classic cap and ring. The ferrule is size 12 with a perfect fit. In my hand, the action is medium-fast with a powerful parabolic demeanor. A short-stroke picks up 40 feet of line effortlessly. The rod received new wraps and varnish by Steve Blake. Includes the original bag, tube, and for added clout, the original hangtag.
Payment by check or money order required. If PayPal or credit card is preferred, an additional 3% will be added to the order.
