Question
I have a four piece abbey and imbrie Riverside fly rod in the original rod case and bag. In pretty good condition, one eye is missing.  Was wondering what it might be worth.  Any info you could provide would be appreciated.

Answer
Todd,

Can you clarify if this is the steel or split bamboo version of the Riverside and the length. Assuming its bamboo and 9 ft. long the value would be around $75.  

Note: Abbey and Imbrie didn't make fishing tackle, this rod was probably made by Horrocks Ibbotson or Montague.

But, I would get a 2nd opinion here (you will need to register to post a question in the value section):
