Barder Rod Co ‘The Wallis Avon’ 11' 3-piece split cane & whole cane rod in mint condition c2004

A superb and rare Wallis Avon that has never been used and is in perfect as-new condition.  It has been correctly stored since completion.

The rod is built to the very highest specification.  The super-select whole cane from which the butt section was made was supplied by the late Clive Young (of Young’s of Harrow).  The handle fittings, keeper ring strap and ferrules were all made by us from nickel silver.  The handle was made from Flor (the best) grade cork.

The intermediate rings are the out of production but faultless Sapphrite Laurels Europa hard-chromed stainless steel.  The butt and tip rings are Amberfin.  The Perivale Imperial pure silk whippings are translucent dark red (shade 910) tipped with Pearsall’s green (shade 18).  The graduated intermediate whippings are Pearsall’s Cardinal (shade 12).  The hook keeper ring is secured with a hand-forged nickel sliver strap.

The ferrules have their snug fitting hand-turned hardwood and cork stoppers.  The rod comes in its tailor made bag.

Test curve: 1 pound.
Reel lines: 3 – 6 pounds breaking strain.
Casting weights: up to ¾ of an ounce.

The rod’s appearance is in the classic style but the contemporary action is crisp and progressive, with both a weight saving and a particularly tactile spring provided by the whole cane butt.  This rod is typically versatile and will prove to be immensely satisfying to use for chub, tench, perch, grayling and roach.

We do not currently have any whole cane of sufficient quality to make this particular rod so this example represents a great opportunity to acquire a sought after and practical rod. 

Price: £2,200

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