There is an Esmond Drury fly rod for sale at the moment and i think they made a fly rod called the Fayne.

Mallard,Heron,and Esmond Drury fly can be added if you so wish Mark.Apparently thy may also be a rod called the swallow.Three piece split cane.

There were two stillwater fly rods also,the Chew and the Blagdon,both were 9 foot 6 ins. what the difference was I've no idea,although I've waggled both it was never at the same time to enable comparison.

I don't think so Jerry, so was there a Kennet Perfection fly rod as well as a Kennet Perfection coarse rod.

Apparently so (unsustantiated?), although I spent a lot of time at the Ealing shop in the 50's I've never heard of, or seen one, myself but I was not much of a fluff chucker in those days. I noticed it on another web site a couple of years ago and it stuck in the mind as unusual - link below.
