    Responding to my own post with more info:

    1 is the "l.l. (or b.b.) de france

    the 3rd rod is an anomoly. PHOTOS ATTACHED. No identification except for the trout logo. Look at the case thing. Have you ever seen anything like this?

    If it's a bamboo rod (6 sided blank), I suggest you go to Clarks board. It's a bamboo rod forum. Hope it helps.
    The Classic Fly Rod Forum - Message Board - Yuku
    If it's fiberglass, or round rod blank

    The pictures are hard to tell if it's cane or glass.

    Definately cane. Not nearly as nice of a rod as the hardys. But the sheath thing seems really unusual.
