Marco rods had been around for a long time and their rod kits and blanks were used by many other tackle retailers. My catalogue is from the early 1930s so no mention of carp rods but I think the later rods such as your standard carp would have been looked at as a very nice rod in its day.

I restored two for a chap who may have been a TFF member a few years ago but I can't remember who it was, I believe he used them mainly for Tench fishing.

Wal, I think that we have a bit of memory loss in common! I do hope that the chap remembered to pay you for the restoration work! :Hahaha:

Hi Mr Otter, should you still have the butt ring and no taker I would be more than happy to take it off your hands, for a fair price, as stated earlier I have been looking for one since my post in May . :Hat:

SORTED THANKS TO STOUR OTTER :Hat:

Great to meet up with Torridge Cane while on holiday at Cranford Cottages and Lakes just outside Torrington and hand over the clear agate butt eye that he'd been looking for. What a privilege it was to see his fishing study, chat on all things fishing and vintage over a cup of tea and meet his delightful Bedlingtons.

Thank you Jon.
