I have an old fiberglass fly rod. I was wondering if anyone could tell me more about it.

It is a Shakespeare Wonderod, the glass is white with copper/brown wraps and black thread.

It's marked: Presidential
No. P 1280T - 7'9"
IAF

Thanks!

The "T" in 1280T stood for "trout". (They also made a 1280B, for bass.)

It was rated for an HDH line, which is usually translated into modern line sizes a a DT6, but many people prefer it with a 5 weight and consider it to be a dry fly rod.

The 1280T was made from 1951-1959.

"IAF" is probably a code for the date when it was made, but it doesn't line up with the info on this page.

Somewhere in the $50-$100 dollar range. They made a lot of them, but this is one of the more desirable models, so it would probably be in the high end of that range. (Maybe even slightly more.)
