Just found this and yes, thanks very much for posting such an interesting piece. Surprising that Dawsons employed several people but on the basis that each of them did the complete rod-making job, instead of using specialists on a production line system

Superb, missed first time round, and I’m sure there are others.

Missed that one last time round! What an interesting read.
I was talking ti a chap in Bromley only a couple of months ago... his brother was a rod builder at Dawsons years ago... has a fantastic collection of cane rods but is very elusive when it comes to talking about them.,,
The close season is an important and interesting time for the Angler who set out to catch big fish. It is a timely opportunity for him to make new tackle or renovate old. There are no end of jobs to do, apart from those horrible things called Gardens!
