just back from a business trip..

The kingfisher rod was made by the Montague Rod and Reel company for a retailer called Tyron that carried the kingfisher line. condition, both tips? and length will impact the rod value. Most are 8 1/2 to 9 ft long. Estimate $25 - $75.

The reel would be $5-10 range.
