Actionrod

Actionrod

 

Actionrod was located in Orchard Park, Michigan (near Detroit).  In the 50s, they made a couple of lines of rather nice fly rods.  Later rods from the 60s were of lesser quality, at least those that I have handled.

 

I'll get around to filling this in sooner rather than later.

I just received an Actionrod that’s in very good shape. It’s a 7-1/2’, 2 piece rod that has 6 snake guides plus a stripper and is wrapped in a green/black jasper/twisted thread (looks like a fine diameter silk) with no trim bands or checks.

This rod has a Fenwick style cork grip that measures 6-1/4".

The reel seat is down locking and appears to be made of a plastic/Bakelite material. It’s two-tone matte black with silver/aluminum bands and lock nut.

The decal reads;

Actionglas

TUBULAR GLASS

Orchard Industries, Inc.

Detroit 5, Michigan

SPECIAL FLYROD 7’-6"

There is/was no model number indicated on the decal or blank.

This rod casts very well with either a 6 wgt. SA Headstart or a WF7-F line.
