THIS ROD HAS BEEN SOLD.

Barder Rod Co 8’ 3-piece 2-top Special Exhibition model № 3964/5 fly rod and leather case.

This new rod is a one-off that we built to display at the March 2018 London Fly Fishing Fair.  Now that we have returned from that wonderful event, the rod is available to buy.

Making a rod with a #4-weight tip & a #5-weight tip that work in harmony with the middle and butt sections is one of the greatest challenges in rod making.  We have achieved this feat here, and the rod drew a great deal of attention and admiration in London.

With the #5 tip, the rod is a smooth performer and strong enough for mayfly and sedge fishing.  It will handle weighty nymphs too, with the appropriate casting technique.

The #4 tip creates an accurate, reasonably fast action rod, perfect for small to medium rivers and a really precise instrument.

If you had to restrict yourself to one rod for all round fly fishing in all but the largest streams, from the Rye to the Risle, this would be a faithful companion.

Specification:
- A unique rod, built with one tip rated #4 & one tip rated #5.  Aside from the guides, every part was made in-house.
- Hand made Nickel Silver butt ring lined with figured Brazilian agate.
- Snake Brand light wire guides and tip-top.
- Transparent varnish-impregnated Pearsall’s mid-tan tipped black silk whippings.

- Highly figured Olive wood reel seat spacer.
- Olive wood ferrule stoppers.
- Flor grade handle, built from quarter inch corks.
- Tailor made bag.
- Superb hand-stitched full grain bridle leather case.

Price: £3,000
