I've had this little baby stowed away for a couple of years and recently started restoring it.

The rod is lovely and straight now but was suffering from neglect.

I've had to remove all the snake eyes and bought exact copies of butt cap, reel seat and handle ferrule from Hardy due to the originals being eaten by the dreaded rust worm.

Should look great when its finished.

Its going on ebay with all proceeds going to the Chris Western New Trout Rod Fund for next season.

Pics to follow.

Why don't you try posting it here for sale 1st. Before putting it on flea-bay. At least you know you can trust folk here.

Consider it done.
