Vintage Eagle Claw Fishing Rod

Vintage Eagle Claw Fishing Rod appraisal

This is a single piece, extendable from 6' to 7 1/2', Eagle Claw Powerlight casting rod by Wright & McGill. It is fiberglass with a cork handle and copper colored reel clamp. There is no info online about this rod. Not even Wright & McGill know anything about it besides it being made in the 1950's. Any and all info about this rod would be great.

As a devout fisherman with access to some of the best fishing in the world, I own  few of these rods and am very familiar with them. What you have is a 1950s/1960s  casting rod. Nothing very fancy about it and technology has come along way, but there still is some demand. I routinely buy these for $5-10 at garage sales, they are fairly common. In the retail resale market a pricetag of $30~ is realistic. 


Thanks for sharing, always love seeing old fishing gear. If you have any old fishing/hunting gear, antique weapons/blades, or early firearms please shoot me an email, my email is, I'd love to take a look and might be interested in a purchase.

Thank you so much for the info and I am checking out some old bamboo rods if you could help me with those also.
