Ogden Smith Arun with metal reel seat

Post by Badger » Fri Sep 05, 2014 5:46 pm

Has anyone come across an Arun with a metal reel seat as opposed to sliding reel bands on the cork handle ? Thanks Badger.

I spent weeks looking through for information on Ogden Smith rods while looking for info on yarrow rod, I know next to nothing about vintage tackle but in all my searching I never came across anything other than sliding reel bands to secure a reel to the rod. I'm sure someone else can tell you when this method of reel attachment was first used.

I could understand a Marco Arun with a sliding reel seat - but an Ogden Smiths?
