I have seen lots of bamboo fly rods before but never a spinning rod. It was in a bunch of junk I bought a while back. Has anyone ever heard of this MN maker? I don't collect old tackle so maybe this is common.

I have no reason to keep it or use it. It is tempting to give it to you but I will TRY to resist!

Don't know about the maker but I'd say it's a keeper. I'd use it!

Some of the old Granger fly rods go for pretty good money. By looking at your pictures I am guessing that someone converted it to a spinning rod sometime in its lifetime. The eyelets appear to be from a fly rod. Send it to me and I will arrange for a friend in Nigeria to deposit $10,000 in your bank account if you pm me your account numbers, etc.
Honest.

Deal! If it was converted wouldn’t the name on the butt be gone or the 2 piece connection be in the wrong spot?

I agree, I have a couple of bamboo fly rods and the eyelets are the same. They are not that manufacturer however, maybe they used the same eyelets for both types of rods?

Didn't notice the name on the butt. I stand corrected! You may want to do some serious research on that rod before getting rid of it. Might be a custom job.

I called Prince Ngobo and told him to reverse the transaction.

Cool. I would have just spent it on stupid stuff. I will put it on CL and see what happens.

Well, I just found a Carl Ogg from Granger, Minnesota in the 1940 census. I had done some research on the fly rods made by Granger and things just were not matching up while looking at the pictures and descriptions. My current guess is that the rod was owned by Carl Ogg from Granger, Minn., who put his name and location on it, and it will be very tough to figure out who the original maker was.

That looks like a VERY early spinning reel and it may have some value itself.

Prince Ngobo is not pleased with this chain of events but it is still a "cool old bamboo spinning rod".

My dad had a bamboo spinning rod when I was a kid looked a lot like yours except the handle was longer then yours appears to be, don’t know what happened to it after he died most likly ma got rid of it at sometime or gave it to one of my uncles or cousins

His I believe was made sometime in the 40/50s

If I'm not mistaken, Granger was eventually purchased by Wright and McGill.

Cool rod and reel, but looks to be far from original.

I've seen a few like that over the years. Some came with 2 butt sections, one spinning and one fly. Neither would have any eyes before the joint.

That is a fine old rod and reel. I remember my Uncle had a bamboo rod that had both spinning and fly rod handle sections.

I've got an old Montgomery Ward bamboo fly rod.

First spinning reel was made @1905 and there were no fiberglass rods till after WW2 so there would have been a lot of cane spinning rods at one time. Just as there were thousands of cane casting rods back when. I am 69 and have only seen one 'boo casting rod and one 'boo spinning rod.
I think the " owned by Carl Ogg from Granger, Minn.," is correct and Pete is correct in that Wright & McGill (aka Eagle Claw) did buy the Goodwin Granger Company at the end of WW2 from his widow.
