I've been given a pile of old rods and some of them I've never seen before...

Then again I haven't been fishing forever so if there's anyone one out there who can shed some light on these 'sticks', I'd really appreciate it... ;)

Now here's one I believe is really old... The rod itself is square and slides into the handle, really weird.

Definitely an old rod... http://www.realsreels.com/RecordABUrodlistsfromcatalogs.html

The green one was made sometime between the 1950's - 1960's... :shock:

I have one very similar to this.....will take pics & post.

Got it from a very old family friend of my In-laws about 20 years ago..............it short & breaks up.....very handy little travel rod. Solid & old.

The friend was+- 70 then , & had it already in his possession for a long time.

Will be gr8 to hear the history behind these rods.

I've written to the manufacturers, hoping to receive a response... Will keep you guys posted.

I've decided I'm going to find a nice piece of wall and just hang them all for display purposes... ;) They'll be out of the way and tamper proof... ;)

Looks like the glass fibre rods I fished with as a kid in the 60's and 70's,the pistol grip one I had was used with a small smack 8 closed face reel.
