Lot 403: Sweet Vintage Cortland 444 Split Bamboo Rod Three Piece

Sweet Vintage Cortland 444 Split Bamboo Rod Three Piece, Including two tips. No breaks, splits or loose wrappings. For 5 or 6 line. Has been fished. Grip is soiled but rod is excellent. Together with a 3 1/8” Hardy PERFECT reel with two extra spools. The Perfect is one of the most famous reels and the basic design has not been changed since the mid-1800s. Some rubs on finish but in excellent working condition. Spools are loaded with two sinking and one floating lines. Right hand wind. NOTE: We have not been able to figure out how to change the spools as there is no slotted head retaining screw. Aluminum tube for rod. Reel has a later vinyl Hardy case and spools have leather bags.

Price Realized: $425
