Double-handed fly rod

Post by BeardyRich »

I’ve come across a double-handed fly rod that is 11ft 6in but I think 6 inches is missing from the tip section, so it would have been 12ft originally. The serial number dates it to 1900 but I don’t know what model of rod this could be.
Does anyone have a 1900 catalogue or know what the rod might be?

Oh hi Tony, you’re Malcs friend then. I thought it strange to see my brothers rod in the post.
Anyway, thanks for posting the pics. I’ve added you as a friend on here and hope we can meet up sometime. Regards, Richard.

Hi Richard. Yeah been on here for about 5 years. Glad you didn't mind. It would be nice to have a group meet in the future.
