FB 180216. 9’0” HEDDON BILL STANLEY’S FAVORITE No. 20 [Refinished] 3/2. 5 7/8 oz. #7/8 line. 4.5/64” tip; 12/64” mid; 19/64” butt; U/L bright alum screw lock over wood spacer into hooded cap; Full Wells grip; Bent Wire hook keeper; Wraps maroon silk tipped grey on chrome snakes & tip tops; Ceramic stripper; Bright N/S ferrules; in original Heddon maroon bag & Heddon Maroon alum, tube with locking cap. [Cat. 2018] FB 180216 con-lo – This is a completely refinished Heddon No. 20 fly rod- the refinish did not follow any of the original specifications. The reel seat & the grip are entirely different from the original; guides are bright chrome rather than bronze; wrap colors are wrong, ferrules are bright instead of gun metal. Only the bamboo shafts are original. However, the refinish is well done; all sections straight & full length; ferrules fit tightly; a very fishable rod. The original Model 20 had a 2 ½ [19/64”] ferrule which made it a Bass-Trout action for a HCH line. I tossed this rod with a DT-7 line- it handled it beautifully. Some might like it with a WF-8. There are no markings on the rod to indicate its Heddon heritage. Grip slightly soiled. Very Good-Near Fine. $195
