I wonder does anyone have a catalogue for this maker? One of my boot sale finds is a rod called the Eagle. 10' 6" three section , two whole cane and the top solid glass. Nothing special just a mid quality general rod from I would guess mid Sixties? I'm curious to know how it would have been described and how much it would have cost?ImageImage

I'm surprised that you haven't had any responses, so far, Catfish.017.
I seem to remember that WB Clark were a small / medium sized tackle wholesaler. Never seemed to see much of their branded stuff though.

Can't help with catalogues unfortunately but to the best of my knowledge they are still in business in one form or another.

Used to use their gold spade end hooks - superb for bread and worms.
