Conolon Live Fiber F87

This rod was chemically stripped and modernized by a FFR member.  I really liked what he did with it, so I decided to buy it.  New cork, wraps and guides.  The metal ferrule was removed and a spigot ferrules was retrofitted.

It appears that Conolon Live Fiber F87's were made in the 1950's in Cost Mesa, CA.  I'll post more info once I find out more on the history.

Here is a link to the thread on Fiberglass Fly Rodders.

Here is a link to a Conolon | Garcia wiki so you can see the history of Narmco - Conolon - Garcia.
