This is a very nice all-original 8' long Samson four-piece steel fly rod by Union Hardware Co. Torrington Conn. U.S.A. All this information is marked in the reel seat. It is 9' long overall including the handle. This is a very light action long steel fly rod that is in excellent condition and has all the original guides, hardware, and brass ferrels. It has the original cork handle, which remains in excellent condition. If you collect the early steel fly rods this is a good one to put away, as it also comes in the original cloth holder. These older type steel rods from the turn-of-the-century are becoming more collectible and harder to find, especially ones in this condition. If you collect early fly fishing rods or would like to try to land a trout on an ultra-light steel rod then this is for you.
