Quick Overview

Early B James Ealing MKIV Avon

Details

This is a beautiful restored 10' 2 piece attributed to B James & Son, Ealing, MKIV Avon. The rod has dark silk whippings, clear agate butt and tip guides, pink agate line intermediates typical of the 80's when the rod was restored, B James and Son, Ealing hand written by the restorer H B Broughton together with the date the rod was purchased and also the price of £9-10-0. It has a classic B James stepped winding check, sliding alloy reel rings," trumpet shaped handle, red button protector and the varnish is in very good condition. The cane has a dark honey colour and the rod feels lovely with a very quick action typical of the early Ealing models. Sadly, the hook keeper has not been replaced in the restoration. I firmly believe the rod to be a genuine early B James having handled and owned many early B James rods. Overall this is a fantastic rod in very good condition ready for the bank. Had the rod had the original transfers the rod would be in a different price bracket so it really is top quality cane for the money. The rod comes in an original early B James herringbone bag of the era. A classic rod for the vintage fishing tackle enthusiast ready to be used.
