Re: Baitcaster-to-Fly Rod conversion (antique)
Me personally would restore it and put it in a glass box and hanging it on my family room's wall. To me the sentimental value of a handed down item from a pap is greater than any fly rods. Who knows you might be able to hand it down to your kids or grand kids.
