1635: 7 1/2' Lyon & Coulson Crown Trout Fly Rod
Wonderful 7 1/2' Lyon & Coulson "Crown" Trout Rod. Made by Heddon, this 2/2 rod is the equivalent to Heddon's Featherweight rods. It is in good condition and has red wraps tipped black, a red glass stripper, and a brown tenite reel seat with screw down-locking bands that carry Heddon's patent number. The top snake guide on one tip is missing and the varnish has minor bag marks which are easy to polish. The sections are full and straight and with an olive bag and red fiber tube with perfect label (which is for the L.&C. "Captain" model).
