Ok I was holding back, but after reading a few posts now...
I have a Russ Peak 8' glass flyrod. I've already done some research, and have found it is a desirable piece.
The rod is in 2 pieces, and in excellent condition. The cork handle has some wear marks, but is also in great shape.
The information is hand written directly on the rod as follows:
Russell J. Peak Rod #RJP 35-185-8500
21 North Allen Ave., Pasadena California 8-28-58
8'-3 3/8 oz. 285-5115-2063-167c-285
Custom made for Earl Crowe
I've found a pretty big range for this piece... from $800.00 to $3000.00.
I'm wondering if the members here would agree? Or, if anyone knows how to narrow it down a bit.
