Today I was given a bamboo rod by the wife of a good friend who has passed on.Vicki on the cork handle.Came in a wooden box with a lot of wet flys.Rod is a 3piece,8 ft.With 3 tips.He used it 2 times back in the 70's.Mint condition.Wrappings seem tight,ferrules good.No scratches.I am going to fish it as I know thats what he would have wanted.Being as it is old can I fish it w/o reasonable fear of the rod breaking?Any ideas on age,value?Martin automatic reel with the # 8A stamped on it.
