Hi Everybody,
Hopefully you can help me with what I have. I am looking for it's line weight, year it was made, what it sold for, what it is worth and why it says "Bean's LL" on it's shaft?
I just bought it and this is what I can tell you:

1) LL Bean Bammboo Fly Rod, 8 1/2', new / unused? (plastic still on cork grip). The only writting on the rod is "Bean's LL". It is wrapped in black thread. It is a 3pc, 2 tip, all 4 pcs. are the same length.

2) Rod Tube is alumimum, both ends unscrew, has it's label that reads L.L. Bean, Inc. Freeport, Maine. Typed on this label reads: 8 1/2 Foot L L Fly Rod.

3) Rod bag is olive green canvas, no tag.

Thanks, butternut-tyer
