recently bought my first split cane rod

still waiting for delivery - shipped by Seller on 12th...
ParcelFarce 48hr  have sent it  'somewhere'  in Ireland - not to Scotland... :z8

anyway - it's missing a ferrule stopper (right name.?)
anyone know a supplier...?

HI John

eBay probably the best place :z16

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ROD-FERRULE-STOPPER-acorn-for-Allcocks-vintage-split-cane-fly-float-rod-/331986787411?var=&hash=item4d4bf45c53:m:mQwPp83gvoAr1cS4OgcsBJw

Plenty others on there, you might even find a match for the one you have :z16 just search 'ferrule stoppers'

Good luck :z16

thanks - that was my first action....came up with 2000+ hits
strangely only 2 pages are shown = 120...

'purefishing7' swamps the listings with the same advert but for each rod in creation.............I hate that....

their cork/walnut stoppers are 10 each ......but nice... :shock
wade safe...............john

That will be because the suppliers have multiple units for sale. If 2 sellers have 250 stoppers each to sell you will get in the search results, 500 listed, but only see 2 sellers.
Ok, I admit it, I quite like this salmon fishing lark....
