I am searching for a Hardy Favorite 11.6' 3 piece 8WT. The rod was built in 1981-1982 and was 23-22 years old. It was the old heavier graphite. It could not be repaired and was replaced. I lost both front sections fishing the Fraser in BC. I latched onto something like a submarine and the lower spiggot broke off. Then both sections travelled down the tight line into the river. Then the line snapped. The butt section was retained in lieu of replacement. All I have left is the bag.
