Old-timer's mumble about fishing, collection, running,.........
Sunday, May 31, 2015
I've just refinished another rod, Gart Bros brand casting rod made by Phillipson. This time, I fixed an end of ferrules using a genuine part, and exchanged all the guides and threads. I tried to reproduce the original finish, but used higher-quality vintage guides and adopted a double-thread pattern to attach them.
I believe this rod is good for Zara Spooks and other pencil baits. I now feel like going fishing with this rod and some of my favorite baits, hopefully enjoying casting from my Old Town canoe in a clear highland lake.
