Fly Rod, Boivin Rod

(Item: ROD, FLY)

This is an early wooden (not bamboo) fly rod in two sections, ~9'-3" in length when assembled. It consist of a base section, two tips (one of them missing about 2 inches at the end) and a carrying case.

The case is ~60" long and is made of cherry (I believe) with a leather tip on either end secured by brads. One side has a fitted groove for the lower section and the other side has two fitted grooves for the two tips. The sections of the rod are held in place by ribbons, themselves secured by brass tacks.

The sections of the rod appear to be made of cherry. They have brass eyes bound to the rod with thread, four on the base and eight on the upper section with a brass eye on the tip (one tip missing).
