Hardy Bros., 7’0”, C.c. De France Bamboo Trout Rod. For Sale
Hardy Bros., 7’0”, C.C. de France bamboo trout rod. This
two-piece rod is an early example of this famed model, with
a nickel silver spiked blued male ferrule, and light brown
signature and intermediate silk winds. It has the all-cork reel
seat with Hardy’s patented butt cap (known as the “Universal
Reel Holder”) and aluminum sliding band. The serial number
on the aluminum protective butt is E9551, 1954, which is
beside the usual Hardy Bros. Royal Warrant. This 2.75 oz.
rod is quite straight, with no repairs, although I suspect that
it may have had a light over-coat that has been professionally
done. It comes in a one-tip bag, and I will throw in a nice
brass capped aluminum tube for protection.
