I have seen that transfer before on a glass fly rod but the only fly fishing I can find associated to Bonham is in the USA.

From Wikipedia:

"Bonham is a surname of English and Welsh origin derived from the French phrase, bon homme, literally meaning "good man"."

Also bonham is synonymous for piglet...

The mis-registration of the printing is a bit of piglet for sure.
