Hi all
A new member and just getting into fishing with vintage tackle, I'm from sunny Somerset.

As my addiction to buying old rods is taking hold of me can anyone shed any light on the golden hop by anon shaw my latest purchase.

Its a 3 piece 10ft and split cane but the top section is rounded.

Many thanks

A hearty welcome, Sir.

Hi Paul
Welcome to TFF .
You say the tip section is rounded and I think I've just seen a photo of it on Facebook ? It looks a tad short too ?
