Vintage Bamboo Fly Rod Appraisal

What is this old vintage bamboo fly rod worth?

This is a question we hear a lot, and it can be a very difficult one to answer. The used bamboo fly fishing rod market, like many markets, is a subjective one. While most people might consider a certain rod to be worth $600, to the fisherman who grew up fishing that same model and for whom it holds sentimental value, the worth may be far greater. However, some fly rods tend to carry more value than others, and a knowledgeable appraiser can give a fair estimate.

Orvis does not provide a rod appraisal or buyback program, but we are pleased to recommend the following reputable vintage tackle dealers who do.
