    Does anyone know anything about a Walters Fly Rod. Glass, 8-1/2 foot long. From what I understand, old and expensive?

    Thanks,

    Stan Walters is kind of the 'grand father' of fly fishing - he brought it to the masses.

    Not sure on the rod - sounds like an older one he lent his name to. Not knocking the rod, but for fishing the newer rods will be better, or go for old bamboo. Fiberglass is just too hard to work.

    As a collectors item it might be worthwhile.
