August 2012
THIS ROD HAS BEEN SOLD

Early delivery opportunity: 11¼' three-piece Chris Yates Merlin with split cane sections throughout.  This is a classic interpretation of our ever popular all-round Avon-style rod in the compact and easily transportable three piece format.  Now ready to whip and varnish, it is ferruled, has a 25" handle made from hand-cut ¼" champagne grade corks with aerospace grade alloy fittings, and a fitted bag.  The silk colours would be chosen by the owner.  If ordered this month it will be ready in October/November.  Price £1,600

April 2012
THIS ROD HAS BEEN SOLD

Early delivery opportunity for unique fly rod, a special one of a kind 8' #4-weight two-piece two-top model No 2964 fly rod.
This rod is fitted with a unique and beautiful set of Titanium handle and reel seat fittings (butt cap, sliding reel band, grip check and shoulder collar) which are both incredibly strong and remarkably lightweight.  The perfectly proportioned Leonard-style nickel silver ferrules are also lighter than the Swiss pattern ferrules usually fitted to our two-piece rods.
The butt ring (stripping guide) has a super-select agate lining whose colours perfectly compliment the subtle tones of the split cane blank, silk whippings and highly figured olive wood reel seat.
The lightweight snake guides are hand made in England from stainless steel and blued to match the ferrules.
The vintage Pearsall's Gossamer silk used for the guide whippings is one shade darker than our standard, to further identify this rod as a very special one-off.
The rod is presented in a made to measure cotton bag with an integral stiffener to protect the tips, and a leather covered aluminium case.
Because of this rod's special components, it is exceptionally lively and light in the hand. Its compound tapered progressive action will permit great accuracy and delicacy of delivery at short ranges, but it will handle surprisingly long casts for a rod of its size too.  Price: £2,000

March 2012
THIS ROD HAS BEEN SOLD

Early delivery opportunity: the 7' #4 is our most popular and versatile small stream fly rod.  Very light in its two piece format and conveniently portable, it will cast accurately and delicately from a rod's length to thirty feet away.  This is a rod that has become a firm favourite of anglers who frequent out of the way brooks and the side streams of larger rivers.  Whilst modest in size and subtly smooth in its character, it is a properly durable instrument that will stand up to prolonged and busy fishing.  Price £2,000
