I was opening some boxes and unpacking some more of my treasures I have acquired over the years and I wanted to show you this one.
This is an Antique Bamboo Fly-Rod in it’s own travel case. I’m sure the case came with a canvas cover when it was new but it is lost now.
This is a five piece rod and each piece fits down into a slot in the metal cap on the end of the holder. There are not any manufacturers markings on this so I don’t know the maker. Maybe someday I will find a suitable canvas cover for it as I am browsing around in an Antique Mall or Flea Market. Until then I will just display this rod in my office, it will look nice displayed alongside my antique fishing books. More treasures to come!
