Very Nice J S Sharpe Splice Joint Salmon Spey Rod Bamboo 4 Pc 11'6" 1950s Era:
SUPER NICE CONDITION J S SHARPE SPLICE JOINT BAMBOO SPEY ROD--first sharpe rod i have ever seen--this rod is made in aberdeen scotland and when assembled measures 11 ft 6"--the decals say "the aberdeen" and "scottie impregnated"--i think its from the 1950s era but not certain--the rod is split bamboo construction designed for salmon fishing--the unigue feature is the rod sections have splice joints which are scarfed together with twine--this supposedly make a much stronger connection between sections than standard ferrules do--the rod has 3 sections and a spare tip for total 4 peices--it has 13 line guides including the tip guide--the tip sections have red agate guides with 11 imtermediate snake guides wound with maroon/burgundy wrappings--ONE PROBLEM if the 1st red agate guide is missing on the butt section--the guide mount is still intact so a round guide could easily be resoldered in place--is has a really nice clean 23" cork handle--the metal butt cap is marked #5546 and j.s.sharpe ltd. aberdeen--the rod comes with its complete set of 5 splice protectors used when the rod is disassembled or in storage to protect the joint faces--the rod overall shows hardly any wear and no damage except for the missing round guide--its been very well taken care of and appears used very little--it comes in its original fitted canvas carrying case with cloth tag--the only thing missing is the twine that you wrap the joints with--i dont know if its a special type of twine or not--OVERALL A VERY UNUSUAL STYLE ROD--OBVIOUSLY TOP QUALITY CONSTRUCTION AND IN WELL TAKEN CARE OF ORIGINAL CONDITION !!
