Ray--Goodwin Granger was a maker of high quality bamboo fly rods.
He lived in Denver and started making rods shortly after WW 1!
About 1950 he sold out to Wright&McGill.You no have one of his
originals since his name is on the reel seat.I have a Granger
Aristocrat I bought in the winter of 1950 and it has Wright &
McGill on the reel seat.For more imfo see v 2 of Ernest Schwiebert
Trout pp1050-1052.Pursue!GRW
