Youngs of Harrow, Otter Brand "The Roach rod" 11ft Whole and spliced Split
cane rod. This 11ft 2 piece whole cane butt and whole and spliced split cane tip
is as straight as a die. The benefit of the whole/split cane combination gives
this rod a very crisp action and it is not at all "floppy" just perfect for roaching
on a summer days. The script is totally unscratched. The red/burgundy yellow
tipped and red/burgundy intermediate silk whipping is just perfect and the
varnish finish is beautiful. You can see for yourself in the photo's what a
beautiful piece of cane this rod is. The rod has a 24" cork handle with polished
aluminium butt cap with black rubber button and a polished aluminium shoulder
ring and polished aluminium sliding reel retaining bands. The Butt and tip rings
are un-cracked agate lined and the rod also benefits from a hook keeper.
Intermediate rings are of the high bell "stand off" style and chromium plate
