What a lovely thing!
Would love to see some action shots of it in action.
I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete.

Absolutely stunning item, what an item in such condition is an amazing find. I have a 'Gourd' bamboo pole but
nothing as grand as this. :tea:

A little work of art it looks so tactile and begs to be used. I noticed that the cloth/paper? cover inside has a Perch? and a old Mitchell 300 type reel drawn on it, anything else interesting on there?

ImageThis is what came in the box. There are 2 of the paper wrappings, a dedicated cloth bag and a letter with an interpretation of the lettering on the pole and paper wraps. Interesting to note that the reel is showing a full bale arm.
If you have no grease with you, and your rings are full of ice, do not cut out the ice with a pen-knife but get your man to put the rings one by one in his mouth, and so to thaw the ice.

A wondrous thing indeed, there must be many more of these treasures stashed away. Eyes peeled now.

I wish there were! The only markets seem to be Japan & USA - unfortunately.

They are available new at a price - an expensive one!
