For sale here is a very scarce Goodwin Granger Premier Bamboo Rod - Model 8040. The rod is eight feet and has three sections and two tip sections. These rods featured the patented up-locking reel seat and were stamped "Made by Goodwin Granger Company Denver" on three lines with the 1938 patent information stamped above it. This rod remains in excellent, all-original condition. Comes with original bag and labeled tube. The ferrule fit is excellent. Truly one for the Goodwin Granger collector!
