    Default Today's flea market find

    A South Bend bamboo rod, #24, 8-1/2'. It's about as close to mint as you'd find, unless you walked into a sporting goods store about 60 years ago. Both tips original length, original bag. I'm not sure the tube is original (most of these old South Bends I've seen have cardboard tubes) but it fits just fine so close enough. It's marked for an HDH line which equates to a 6wt; a perfect spot for a DT on my old Medalist. For $20 I couldn't pass it up...
