The Temedale was a "one off" - still with the original Aspindale label - £325 I think was the price when made.

I saw it on the "In the Net" website some years ago ( and wanted it!) - and saw it again on the "Fisherman's Emporium". The description of the Temedale has not been erased/amended to that of the "Croftdale" - which is now the rod for sale - it appears!

An approach to the seller may confirm the above.
