I recently acquired a 7 1/2 ' two piece bamboo flyrod. It looks as if it were refinished at some point in its life. The label on the shaft is almost worn off but the name on it looks like "Gold......" possibly Goldrod. Underneath the name is the word "Compact" best I can make out. Anybody out there have any ideas about who possibly made this type rod and when? The tip section is in pretty good shape although it has about a 2 degree downward bend that starts about midway, possibly due to being stored with rubber bands wrapped around it. Does anyone know of a way to straighten the tip? Any help would be much appreciated.
