FB 20019. 9’0” POWELL E.C. DRY FLY ACCURACY 3/2. Solid Build. 5 3/8 oz. #6/7 line; 4.5/64” tip; 11/64” mid; 18/64” butt; Wells grip; U/L bright aluminum screw-lock ["E.C. Powell, Maker Marysville" stamped in oval ] over hard rubber into hooded cap; flap-ring hook keeper; wraps bronze silk on bronze snakes & tip tops; agate stripper; medium- tone varnished bamboo; bright N/S ferrules; one intermediate wrap between each guide; 2 broad intermediates tipped & 2 normal intermediates between butt & first guide. 2-up node staggering. Solid build. In orig. bag & brass-capped aluminum tube. [Cat. 2020] FB 20019 dmx – This is an uncommon Dry Fly Accuracy Rod built by EC Powell in 1935-1940. This rod is a Dry Fly Accuracy Rod, probably an A-8 X 1/5 taper. It is fast and tippy, but not as fast as the Buddy Powell [FB 190051] hollowbuilt which is an A-8 X 1/4 taper. I cast it with a DT-6F Cortland Peach, and it drove the line with a very narrow loop at all reasonable distances. I think it would fish better with a DT7F.The prior owner of this rod has used it extensively, because the grip is heavily soiled, but the bamboo & wraps are near new. The original rod probably had an oil finish, because the rod bag has that characteristic smell. I think it was refinished by the EC Powell shop after WW II, but not by Tony Maslan. One tip may have had a repair at the first guide below the tip top, but it is so well done that I could hardly find it. I think it would be a super fishing rod. With noted faults. Soiled grip; Restored to New by Powell. $1250
