These are antique fly rods. I think they are all 60-100 years old. They are low end collectibles. Nice to hang on the wall, or great conversation pieces. I tried fishing one of them with a modern weight forward floating fly line, once. The top third of the rod exploded like a fire cracker with splinters coming off in all directions. Just a forewarning that I have doubts any of these are fishable.
