model name / number: Cascade
size / dimensions: 8-1/2' - 5 weight
This is the nicest example of an H-I rod I've seen. The rare "Jumping Trout" decal is in Original Pristine condition.
The Impregnated Tonkin Cane decal has a small loss but is 90%.

8-1/2' 3 piece 2 tips. Dry Fly Action. Impregnated and nicely flamed cane is perfectly sound. All sections arrow straight.
Original wraps and guides 100% intact. Grip is Perfect. I don't believe this rod saw much time on the stream.
I fish cane rods exclusively and can say with certainty this is a nice, solid and well mannered 5 weight.
There were a few rods in the H-I line that were darn good rods and the impregnated series are well built.

Vernley 8½' or 9' 3-piece $225
Canada Creek 8' 3-piece $250
Cascade 8½' or 9'
3-piece $225

This was copied from a bamboo fly rod forum. These are the impregnated series.
