Does anyone know who built this cane pole - ADS?

Post by Coral Maestro »

I collected this pole recently and have been unable to track down who would have manufactured it. The makers logo initials look like a combination of ADS or ASD but I can't think who this would be. It's built in the London roach pole style with a typical pattern of whippings associated with those poles and a brass cap which unfortunately isn't engraved. The ferrules for the thicker sections are well made with an inner and outer brass tube (a "brazed joint").

The dace is both lively and lean,
With a beautiful silvery sheen;
He'll snatch at your flies
With a lightning-like rise
And unless you are sharp, he's just been.

It looks a good quality pole with the brazed joints. I wonder if the ADS is a former owners initials.

Have to agree - looks a nice job.

Well,if initials were for previous owner - you could always say it belonged to:
Arnold Schwarzenegger;
Ayrton Senna;
Alan Shearer;
Alvin Stardust - although their middle initial isn't a "D"

Searching on "ADS" - yields less names and nothing that strikes me as a fisherman.

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.

Lots of interesting suggestions! Any other (plausible) ideas?
