Default Bamboo Fly Rod

I recently moved to my mountain house and while unpacking boxes I've had stored for years I came across this Vicki Bamboo Fly Rod from the late 1940. I've had this(original) wood box with the rod, fly's, and line so long I really don't know where I got them. It has never been used packages have never been opened.

I have a bamboo rod that my father used. It has to be 50+ years old but go damaged by a moving company in one of my moves over the years. I might try to fix it.

Your find is priceless!

That is real nice. It looks like the kits made in Japan after the War. They sold a lot of them to American Service men who were stationed with the occupying forces. They came in wooden boxes like that with a number of flies, etc...I might be wrong though.

Never learned how to throw one except
on a pond. That ain't hard, even for me.

River bank is a totally different story.
Tried and tried, just can't get it right for
some reason.

I would love to have that vintage in my collection.
Never would open it.

Great Re-find..
