"In 1988 I was gifted an old paperback book 'Rod Building for Amateurs' by Richard Walker. This was the catalyst which sparked my interest in split cane rods".
SPLIT CANE FISHING RODS FOR SALE
Every now and then I make an exhibition rod for the various fishing tackle shows I attend. Usually a popular, well known model which would normally be sold through my existing clients. For a change I have decided to offer them for sale on my website and every now and then one will pop-up... so keep a look out! At the same time if a high quality second hand rod comes into my hands I will also offer that for sale.
If you have any questions or wish to purchase a particular rod, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Andrew Davis MKIV Carp Rod
This rod is exquisite, a fine example of this iconic rod. I made this rod with those early Bob Southwell made B James rods in mind. Dark steely cane, heat pressed nodes, beautifully whipped.
It has chromed stainless steel full open bridge guides and nickel silver with milky agate butt and tip. The rod has forest green silk with gossamer 1/4 inch intermediates.
The 26in handle has an onion shape made with flor grade cork. The 15/16ths reel bands and engraved butt are polished nickel silver. Reinforced splint ferrules with a tiger oak stop. It also has a small off set nickel silver hook keeper.
Two-piece, 10 foot
* SOLD *
The rod will come with makers back and a certificate.
