Traditional rods for traditional anglers
I am penning this note to say how delighted I am with the latest edition in my rapidly expanding Andrew Davis rod collection. Whilst it goes without saying that your coarse rods are superb this new Bentley Book fly rod is just exquisite. I thought I could never be as pleased with another rod as I was with my Lucky Strike but this Fly rod excels in every respect. It is not only beautifully finished the action is fabulous, making even my attempts to put a fly on the nose of a wild trout look like an expert. I used it on the Derbyshire Wye on quite a blustery day and even with a difficult wind the 4# line cut through and the fly landed just about where I wanted more times than not. Whilst I am waffling on about action I still love the slow powerful strokes of the Dove another amazing Andrew Davis creation
So thank you Andrew for a real treasure, your attention to detail and craftsmanship are unsurpassed.
