A friend came across this old Payne 102 in
really bad shape. Some folks offered him
After stripping away all the old varnish these black spots were quite prominent. With a little care and
some serious time, I made some improvements. See below for the way the rod looks today, including
the extra tip I made for it.
The second tip was made a little lighter, and signed "H. Boyd" so that when I am no longer around
there will be no doubt this tip is a replacement.
