The Constable Wallop Brook 6’9” #4-weight fly rod.
2-piece, staggered ferrule. Built by Edward Barder c1993 on Constable cane. In exceptional condition.
This is a superb, smooth action lightweight fly rod of great class and practicality. It can be quite tricky to find a sound and effective split cane brook rod. This one fits the bill very nicely indeed. Its understated and elegant looks sit well within the environment where it’ll be used. The famous angler and author Brian Clarke treasures his 6’9″ Wallop Brook and we had the pleasure of servicing it for him a few years ago.
