One for the too do section

Post by Harry H » Sun Jun 10, 2018 8:48 pm

This one kept saying buy me buy me so in the end I sucumbed. Well this is it,I think it's Spanish reed/cane/greenheart combination all be it with about 1ft missing off the top,at full length it would have been 14ft. Has some nice quality fittings and has a bit of something about it.
For now it's to the too do section and back to the Roach pole. :Tongue:

That's a lovely looking bit of cane Harry, if I were you I'd swap the greenheart tip for a built cane one. It will be a really nice long rod.

Hi Wal
I have a solid wood tip which came from a Rudge combination rod, it's cane coloured so perhaps Lance wood do you think? I've given it a good flex with no I'll affects but I do have a nice long splitcane tip that I can use if required. :Hat:

Does the rod have 777 on it as other fields have done.

Hi Reedling
No 777 marked,no mention of Mr Kohn either.

I did wonder about the 777 and it is possible that only the rods actually made by Fields have 777 on them.
They did offer rods and reels by many other tackle makers and I had an Octofloat by them with no 777 on it. Just a though..

I think a lot of these rods were actually made by Modern Fishing Tackle (Marco) who supplied rods in various stages of completion to other makers and tackle retailers, for them to finish off.
