Vintage Split Boxed Bamboo Fly/Spin 4 piece Rod and Accessories
Here is a beautiful and rare example of a vintage (1946 – 1952) split bamboo fly/spinning four piece rod.
These were made for the occupying forces in Japan after the end of WW2. There were many different brand names but all were of a similar construction and came boxed with a range of accessories. When made up you have an 8ft No7 Fly rod or a 5ft Spinning rod. The butt is reversible.
The accessories are all intact and the rod is mint/unused and still in the original wrapper and features the original labels, set in its original box.
