    I reckon it could be nearly your age Brian.

    ie; made in the first half of the last century.

    It mighn't be that old.
    My first rod was made by my father from a cane blank he bought at a tackle shop.
    Would have been about 1966, wish I still had it.... Come to think about it , he probably still has it in his old shed..
