HELP:- CAN YOU ID THIS ROD?

Post by Dave F »

I've acquired this 10' 6" three piece fly rod and would like to find out who and when it was made if possible.

The ferrules are similar to those on my Hardy "The Victor" i.e. fit in, twist and lock.
On the butt cap:- "Steel Centre" I presume, talking about the centre of the rod? There are no other marks to suggest a maker or date.

It looks to have some Hardy features but could also be one of the more obscure Scottish makers?

Just to complicate identification, especially regarding locking ferrules - I found I have an Edgar Sealey salmon spinning rod - with locking ferrules!

Just to complicate the complicated I have a Scottie 3 piece fly rod with locking ferrules and not phenolic resin just normal varnish :surrender:

Thank you one and all for the comments. Looks to have been an expensive rod when first purchased…
