Payne - Model 198, 7'6" 3/2 5wt Bamboo Fly Rod

For sale here is a Payne 198, 7'6" 3-piece / 2-tip, 5wt bamboo rod in excellent+ restored condition. Fully restored and the rod has seen very little use since the work was completed.

Strap & ring hook keeper, blued winding check and 6" grip (clean and smooth). Up-locking reel seat over Spanish cedar spacer. Weight is 4.20oz. Medium fast action, this one is a true 5wt in my hands.
