FB 200056. 8’6” E.C. POWELL 3/2. 4 3/4 oz. #6/7 line. “A” Dry Fly action. Solid. 5/64” tip; 11/64” mid; 18/64” butt; Wells grip; U/L bright alum. screw-lock ["E.C. Powell, Maker Marysville" stamped in oval ] over hard rubber into hooded cap; flap-ring hook keeper; wraps bronze silk on bronze snakes & tip tops; agate stripper; medium-tone varnished bamboo; bright N/S ferrules; one intermediate wrap between each guide; 4 intermediates between butt & first guide. 2-up node staggering. Book matched tips. In replacement bag & brass-capped alum. tube. Circa 1930’s. [Cat. 2020.] FB 200056 io. – This pre-WW II solid built rod casts very well with a DT-7F line. The “A” Dry Fly Taper was often used in the Dry Fly Accuracy Events. The grip is heavily used, considerably worn, and ridged; the finish does not match the grip condition. The rod has been carefully restored with new guides & wraps & varnish. The restoration was not done by Powell or Tony Maslan. There is no sign of use on any of the guides. The tip tops were not wrapped up to near the eye as in most early EC Powell’s. I do not think the rod has been fished since the restoration. It is too bad that a new grip was not installed during the restoration. With disfigured grip noted, restored to New. $800
