THIS ROD HAS BEEN SOLD.

Barder Rod Co. 8' 3-piece 2-top #5-weight split cane fly rod and leather case in exceptional condition c2007

This rod has been lightly used about half a dozen times and is a really super example of our ever popular model No 3965 8' 3-piece #5-weight.  Built and finished to our standard specification, this rod comes in a raw silk bag and its hand stitched bridle leather case.

Apart from some very slight silvering on the extreme edge of the butt cap and an insignificant dimple in the finish on the underside of the reel seat, this rod could pass for new.

The perfectly straight split cane blank is especially clean with a seamlessly elegant swelled butt.  The snake rings have a bronze finish (applied by us) and the butt ring is tungsten carbide set in a nickel silver frame.
 
The action of this rod is smooth and versatile.  It has surprising reserves of power and would be perfectly happy casting large mayflies into the wind, or tiny nymphs to winter grayling.  I know this, as it's the model I use myself for most of my fishing.

Price: £2,600

All pre-owned rods supplied by us are now issued with a specially printed and individually signed and dated certificate of ownership.
