I just got a telescoping steel fly rod .It is 9ft in good shape and made by JC Higgins. I think it is quite old and I never seen one before. I was wondering if any one else had one and if they are worth anything.
Cheers GM

I started fishing with one in the sixties, not sure of the maker the rod vanished in a move, the handle reel seat could be converted to a baitcaster and that's what I used on it. Not sure of value, I've had lots of folks say they had one.

If you were to contact Reelman (Eric Baylis of Eric's Reel shop) he might be able to help you out as he is very knowledgeable about old/vintage tackle. He might even make you an offer or offer to sell you one that he owns. Regards.....

[JC Higgins was a brand name of Simpsons or Sears no sure which so it probably not worth very much.
likely thousands of those were sold thru mail order.
