I am wondering if you can help me with a vintage Bamboo fly rod I have, I am trying to get info on it
It has a tag "Made in Japan Yamano", in a wood box, 5 rod pieces (3 which are rod with tips) each approx 33" long.
Can anyone provide info on it? Value, etc..
Modern, many for sale on line. Avg price (new) with case which includes reel (which you are missing) $19.99 USD. Without reel, $10.00 estimated value. https://ontariofishing.com/Rods-Japan-Bamboo/
Yamano is a city in Japan, where this is made. In your pics, I only see one length with a tip, the others have eyelets near the connection. Test by pulling the metal couplers/tips to make sure they're not loose; likewise check the wrappings that hold the eyelets to the rod. If cut, broken or loose rod is worthless. Would cost more to repair than value.
I passed along the information you provided to the man asking.
