Old bamboo rod

Hi,
I have an old bamboo rod that was left in a closet of our first house. It's in a cardboard tube. The only markings on the tube are part of a label that says
Manufactured by Union Hardware Company. Made in USA. something?? Bamboo.

It is a 3 piece rod with an extra tip. All guides and hardware is in tact and it's in excellent condition.

Is this worth anything? I have no idea how old it is, but by the style of writing on the label, I'm assuming it's pretty old (1940's 1950's?). The woman who lived in the house was in her 90's and her husband had been dead for years. This was back in the early 80's.

Thanks,
Jeff
