Vintage Rods and Tackle


This September I will again join over 2,500 riders to raise money for cancer research. Please sponsor me by visiting my Velosano Fundraising Page! All donations, no matter the size, are gratefully welcome!! Thank you!!

From time to time we will offer vintage and used fly fishing tackle. Please check back often for new additions. We are always interested in taking consignments of used cane rods, but visitors please take note: we do not provide free tackle appraisals! Because the value of any fishing collectible is largely based on condition, and because researching values is so time consuming, we can not offer free, sight-unseen tackle appraisals. If you'd like us to appraise your tackle for a fee, please contact us for more information and we'd be happy to assist you. If you've arrived here via a search engine because you've found an old piece of tackle and hope to learn its value, we are very sorry but we are unable to help you without seeing the tackle and charging a fee. Thanks!

Additional Note: All items are covered by our 3-day return policy. The customer can inspect or lawn cast any item for up to 3 days after receipt. If you receive an item and wish to return it, you will receive a full refund for the item provided it's returned promptly in the condition it was sent. All returned items must be insured for the purchase price and packed appropriately. Please contact us before returning any item.

We keep our consignment rates low to help you save money. The single best way for you to decide on an item is to inspect it yourself. We do everything possible to describe items fairly...it does us no good to send you an item that you will only want to return. Let us know if we can provide additional pictures or if you'd like to make an offer via email.

Jim really put the ‘Garrison’ into this rod, with the translucent guide wraps and chocolate silks at the ferrules and tip tops and also the very neatly wrapped nose of the grip and the use of a pocket butt cap and walnut/cork spacer combo. The Garrison 209 is a favorite of many and will throw a DT5 or DT6, or for those that prefer WF lines, will throw a WF6 a country mile. A great all-around rod with an easy-to-cast progressive action and tips heavy enough to throw larger flies if desired. A classic! New, $1,595.

This rod has a medium fast, delicate, unified action via the size 11 ferrules, but also has some backbone, not a noodle by any means, and would be most at home on small to medium-sized water. A classic and rare taper from the Payne catalogue! New, $1,595.

L.J. Downes Rod Company: I was sad to hear my good friend L.J. (Jim) Downes is closing his production rod shop to spend more time with his wife, kids and grandkids….and, to do a little more fishin’ and less workin! Jim still plans to make a limited number of rods for good friends and best customers as time and inclination permits, which is fortunate for his many fans in the bamboo rod community.

Jim’s company motto is ‘Cane Rods That Work’ and he should know: an expert and elegant caster and angler on the stream, Jim knows exactly what makes a rod work, and I’ve never cast one of his rods I didn’t fall in love with. Jim modestly claims he doesn’t make ‘art’ and focuses on how his rods perform, but I would disagree, feeling these are all quite handsome with an eye for a sort of ‘peppy harmony’. We are fortunate to have on offer several of Jim’s rods, all unused shop rods and/or near mint. Some have been lawn cast only, but none have been fished, and all of them- as his motto claims- work very well indeed!

L.J. Downes Rod Company ‘Sloan’s Parabolic’ 7’10”, 2p, 2t for DT5/WF6 line. Flamed cane in a light caramel ala Jim Payne w/3x3 node spacing, mirror matched tips, swelled butt, black snakes and oxidized hardware wrapped in translucent orange thread, agate stripper, 6” cigar grip, oxidized D/L NS cap and ring seat w/figured walnut spacer. Original bag and labeled Downes tube.

The swelled butt gives a lucky owner the best of all worlds: a powerhouse parabolic in nature with a s. 14 ferrule, but with a swelled butt doesn’t suffer as some pure parabolics by a lack of ‘lift’ when getting large fish near at hand. Mint, as new. Original bag and labeled Downes tube. Lists at $1,595, offered at $1,495.

A Special Group of Hardy Perfect Widespool Reels:

When Hardy reintroduced the Widespool Perfect, the first small batch of reels had a novel and gorgeous ‘Gunmetal’ blue anodizing. All subsequent reel batches reverted to the typical traditional grey anodizing, making these(save one) quite novel and I think the most beautiful reels Hardy has produced. The used reels were the property of rodmaker Jim Downes and used at shows to mate with his rods, but have never seen water.

Hardy Widespool Perfect Blue Finish 2 7/8” diameter for 3/4 lines, .785 wide, 5.3 oz, RHW, but easily reversible.

Reel foot has some rash from mounting on rod, but reel frame and edges are spotless. Since the foot is held on the frame with two screws, it could be easily buffed back to like-new. Original box, pouch and paperwork. Pouch has some tape residue on exterior. $675

Unmarked Leonard Mills/Julius Vom Hofe(?) Raised Pillar Fly Reel 2.710” OD, 1” wide. Aluminum frame and spoolsides with nickel silver screws, foot, and crank. Ebonite side plates and crank knob, half-handle crank, aluminum bearing cap.

A super smooth reel with virtually no spool wobble or side play, the crank knob could use a little lubrication to turn more freely. Minor corrosion to the frame but no cracks or deep scratches in the rubber…could polish up to be a stunner. The click sounds the same forward and reverse so could be set up to wind either way. Foot appears to have been slightly bent at one end and gently peened back into place as it sits flat and fine. Will hold up to a DT5 line and backing and would be a perfect aesthetic fit for a cane rod. The workmanship and tolerances held in the making of this reel amazed me. $625

Orvis ‘99’ 8’6” 2p, 1t. for 7/8 line, medium action. Orvis impregnated cane, 3x3 node spacing, C/P maroon/red wraps over black Perfection snakes and braced Mildrum-type stripper, D/L aluminum screw lock, 6 1/2” cigar grip, serial number 22701.(1957)

Made to commemorate Orvis 99th anniversary. Near mint, cork slightly ridged but immaculately clean, bluing 100%, size 16 Super Z- ferrules. The only sign of this rod even being cast is a small amount of scuffing to the reel seat barrel and a very minute scratch on one flat between the stripper and first guide, straight and tight. Original bag and paper labeled tube, some areas of label not legible.

I took this rod out with a Rio WF7 line and it performed best once the entire belly was extended beyond the tip. It would pick up the entire head and with a small haul shoot an incredible amount of line effortlessly. A cannon of a rod that would be great for large trout/bass/pike/steelhead/grilse/carp. Pair it with the Pflueger 1498 reel listed below and have a fantastic, durable and care-free outfit for not a lot of $. $449 SOLD!

J.D. Wagner Signature Series Model 376 I:  7’6” 3p. 2t. 5 wt., serial number 1106-7 Medium, smooth action. Richly flamed cane, 3x3 node spacing, mirror matched tips, standard translucent wraps with fine black tipping, black wraps at ferrules, sterling silver rope braid hook keeper, 6” full Wells grip, N.S. U/L screw lock seat w/stabilized amboena spacer, black guides with red agate stripper, oxidized hardware.

In fair OAC, this rod has seen plenty of fishing, which warms my heart, nothing sadder than a ‘mint, unused’ cane rod. Varnish in great condition but could use a cleaning and polish, N.S. seat could use a polish, mid and both tips have sets, one tip male ferrule fits quite loosely and some bluing loss to ferrules and agate stripper frame. This model has a nice, easy medium action that bends into the butt reminiscent of a Paul Young Martha Marie, equally at home with dry flies to nymphs and small streamers. Tube shows some wear and caps could use a polish, old paper label shows wear, can be replaced gratis. $1,295 SOLD!

F.E. Thomas Special Streamer 9’ 3p. 2t for 7 line, Medium fast. Medium color tempered cane w/quasi spiral node spacing, brown C/P wraps over heavy gage reverse twist guides and Mildrum stripper, typical Thomas Signature wrap at swelled butt in 3/7/3/1 pattern, triple tipped at ferrules, NS hook keeper soldered to NS winding check, 6” modified Wells grip terminating in an aluminum and NS D/L screw lock seat with no-jam ‘garden hose’ threads with varnished cedar spacer, cap impressed ‘F.E. Thomas Special, Bangor, Maine EF64’, size 18/12 step down NS ferrules with witness marks.

Uncasing and assembling this rod to give it a wiggle, I couldn’t wait to cast it. I took it out with a WF7 line and was easily able to pick up the entire head plus more running line, make one gentle back cast and a short haul on the forward and effortlessly shoot an unbelievable amount of line. Paired with a hefty reel this rod would be a joy to fish all day, belying its length. Ferrules fit silky smooth and snug, original varnish excellent, some slight cork ridging, straight and sparingly fished, in very good overall condition. A great rod for any large water and could be used for trout, bass, steelhead, grilse, pike, carp, etc. Original bag and labeled case, label showing extensive wear. $1,245 SOLD!
