Default Shakespeare Wonderod -- Please Help Identify

Hello. The details of this rod are smudged out. It is about 6 ft. 6 in. Pardon my ignorance, but can folks tell me if this rod even a fly rod? I don't know much about old rods but I assumed this was a fly rod because it doesn't look like a spin fishing rod to me.

If it is a fly rod, can anyone offer advice on what reel to buy for it (maybe a small Pflueger medalist? which model?) and what fly line size and type to use?

Thanks very much from a passionate but as yet uneducated fisherman.

Hi lureofthereel,

It would be better to have seen the first guide on the rod but the guide in the picture is the type used on a spinning rod. From the way the grips are dirty it looks like it was used double handed. When you measured it did you measure from butt to tip?

Frank
