For sale here is a beautiful Payne Canadian Canoe rod with its original hang tag, bag and tube. This model was one of the three special rods Payne offered in the 1950's to 1970's, along with the Bass Bug Rod and the Streamer Rods. Each is very rarely seen!
8 1/2 feet, three sections with two tips for a 7 weight line. The rod weighs 5 3/4 oz. and remains in excellent plus original condition. All sections are full length and straight. Chestnut brown silks with black tipping with black and gold tipping at the male ferrules and winding check. Moderately tempered cane. All of the hardware is oxidized with the exception of the reel seat. Aluminum up-locking reel seat over a gorgeous cedar insert. Ferrule sizes 12/64 and 18/64 with an excellent fit. The action is medium fast and very authoritative. It is missing its extension butt and ferrule plugs.
A very desirable and very scarce Payne rod. Don't miss out as you may not see another one like it in a very long time!
