Found this Beautiful Eagle Claw Trailmaster!
6'-9" Spin/Fly combo.
Brand new cork handle. No scratches on the enamel.
Immaculate condition.
I found it in a pawn shop in Missoula.
Got it for $25

I've tried out its spinning capabilities,
I've yet to try its fly capabilities but as soon as I do I'll put up a review.
I'm gonna go select a fly reel tomorrow

Tell me about it, it's like people practically give gear away here. Immaculate gear for a fraction of the price. Plus no sales tax.

I found another in decent condition, but same capabilities!
It's a 7'-1" rod, with spin/fly rod seating.
It's length gives it waaaayyy better play on the end than my 6'-9".
However, it might need to be re wrapped and it needs a new ferrule.
But for $15 it still might be worth it.

That's a great find! I bought mine years ago when I was still doing Guide work. Every ounce counts when you're packing. Mine has caught many mountain trout in Canada and the U.S.

If you haven't bought it yet you should!

This is still one of my favorite rods. It is also the rod I was using when I caught my ONE and only Golden Trout. Great rod and idea.
