I think it's a pike rod, meant for dead baits or heavy spinning.

Good afternoon folks . To add to the MARCO list I have in front of me a nice little 7 ft 6 inch 2 piece light spinning rod labelled the 'Capella' . The Capella legend is part of the trilby hatted laughing angler transfer , the elasticane transfer is further up the butt section . The rod has jewelled [red ] lined rings throughout , all whippings are burgundy and seem original , rod has a shaped cork handle with a fixed alloy winch fitting

I have both an eight and ten foot version of the Capella. The ten foot version is a de luxe and has agate lined rings.
The coiled line travels from the reel, it brings up at last, the hook goes home, and then begins the test of skill. "BB"
