We were rummaging through the basement at my wifes grandparents lakehouse today. Admiring her grandads numerous rods and reels, when we came across one that seems to be really old. The reel is a pfleuger Silk Cast. That says trademark number 1953 on it. The rod is a Excelsior Steel Rod. And is honestly made of metal. I was wandering have any of yall ever seen or heard of these before?

I learned to use a baitcaster on my grandpa's stainless steel fishing rod. Not sure about your rod and reel in particular but I've heard some of the old steel rods can be worth some $$$. I have no idea where you would go to find the value. I have tried. I have a couple pre-Browning Siloflex rods that I haven't had much luck with. Seems old lures hold more value than equiptment. It would definatly look nice hanging on your trophy wall.
