"... The result, says Edward in very English understatement, "looks nice".  Actually, it's a work of art as much as a feat of engineering, frighteningly delicate yet immensely powerful.  It will sell for between £1,400 and £1,800, and a fisherman seeking perfection will have to wait 18 months for one.  Looked after, it will last generations."
