8'6" #4-weight 3-piece 2-top model 31024 fly rod & leather case in exceptional condition c2011

We think his is as refined and precise as it’s possible for a fine split cane fly rod in this format to be.  We took inordinate pains over the development of this model and it is one we are particularly proud of.  We sent the first example to a split cane rod dealer and connoisseur in America who had this to say about it:

‘Carefully I fitted the reel and threaded it through the exquisite guides.  I carefully navigated out the front door to the long section of lawn in front of my house.  I stripped off about 50' of line and started false casting.  One word escaped my lips, wow.
   This rod is the finest I have ever picked up. Period.  If this is the taper you and your math friend figured out, do not lose it.  Not only is the entirety of the rod perfect, it also casts perfectly.  I was able to do anything I wanted it to do with ease.  The long wait for both of us was well worth it for me.  The rod is simply the most elegant piece of perfection I have laid hands on in the tackle business.  I could not be happier.’

This example is finished in our standard format with a completely clean unsoiled cork handle and only the slightest silvering to the bluing on the edge of the butt cap and one or two of the snake guides (none of which is immediately apparent).

The rod comes in a silk rod bag and a hand stitched leather case. The flawless traditional varnish finish is fully mature and the rod is ready to fish.

Price: £2,500
