Putting a value on a fly rod

Hey guys, I inherited a fly rod a while back and I am considering selling it and have no idea of a fair price. Is there website that you can recommend where I can search for a value of the rod ? It looks like it has never been fished. According to the serial number I believe its from the 60's. Its a Fenwick Voyageur
Thanks in advance.

Thanks grousedog,I did happen to see that post. I don't know if 2 piece or 3 piece makes a difference in value or the serial number as well (mine is an H )

I would think it is probably in the same ball park as far as value goes, but I am no expert.

Re: Putting a value on a fly rod

The value of Fenwick rods varies. In general, the most prized rods are 7 to 8 ft. long. But it comes down to what someone will pay for it. I bought a FF706 (7' 6 wt.) 2 years ago and paid $60 for it. Some of the asking prices on E-Bay are ridiculous, not in my opinion alone, but others as well. Go to FiberglassFlyrodders.com and pose the same question regarding value.

Re: Putting a value on a fly rod

On Ebay, join the site, then you can see the prices of SOLD items.

Which is a much better indicator than the prices LISTED.

You can see the prices of listed items without joining. But to see the prices of sold items, you must join.

You must be signed in.

Then do a search for the item, then click the Sold box over on the left side.

Re: Putting a value on a fly rod

Just speculation, but your rod may be worth more money to collectors because it is a 3 piece rod. Most Fenwick rods were 2 piece. Also, it appears to be in very good condition and has the original sack and tube - this is important to collectors. I participate in the FiberglassFlyrodders forum, and could pose the question of value if you wish.

that would be great. I'm sure they will ask for the serial number, so here it is H 78139 Thank You.

Re: Putting a value on a fly rod

I posted the rod on FiberglassFlyrodders for you this evening. Will keep you posted, or you can go to the "collecting fiberglass rods" forum on that site and see for yourself.
