Burley Butt Button

Post by Hampshireboy » Sat Nov 10, 2018 8:48 am

Hi all, I am looking for a Dawson’s Burley Pike rod Butt button . It was missing from the rod on purchase. I think it’s a basic black one but unsure which size. Any ideas where I could source one.? I’m teaming it with a Grice and Young Sea Jecta 111 after reading that a lot of people rate them for Deadbait Piking. A Mitchell 410 will be used for fishing further out. Hope I have got it right with the rod and reel combos as I’m new to all this vintage gear but loving it👍 Thanks in advance for any info. Regards. Steve.

Hi Hampshireboy, heres a link to Guides and Blanks for the rubber button https://www.guidesnblanks.com/p/screw_in_rubber_button

They also do the whipping thread, I think a good match for yours would be Fishhawk Garnet no 206. https://www.guidesnblanks.com/p/fishhaw ... ls_grade_a

Not sure if it would need sealing before varnishing so it would be best to do a couple of test whips one sealed and one varnished straight over.

Wal.
