Hi All,

It's been awhile and I hope you all are doing well.

The reason for this post is a friend from work has an old fly rod his Dad left him.

From what I can tell is a bamboo rod. Three piece with an extra tip.

From what I can make out it's a Hawk Model from the Japan Fishing Company. I can take pictures if that will help. Thanks in advance.

Any and all information is truly appreciated.

May the striped ones show soon. :smile:

tight lines,

There's not a lot of respect for the post-war Japanese rods, although some of them fish pretty well, especially those in the shorter lengths.
My first fly rod was a 9' Japanese cane and cost all of $3 new. Even in the best of shape, you won't find one today with a value of more than $40 or $50
