Heddon Black Beauty Bamboo Fly Rod?
I recently received an old fly rod as a gift but do not know anything about it. On it it says Heddon Black Beauty #17-8 1/2-1 3/4F-HDH ar E. Originally, it included 2 end sections, I only have one and I believe it is the lighter one of the two. What weight is this rod and would I still be able to use it on a small native stream?
