Quick Overview

Milward’s Float Rod

Details

This is a rare example of the Milward’s, 3 piece, spliced whole cane split cane float rod. It is possibly a Matchcraft, which was uncatalogued and very similar in build. The butt section is a lovely medium build whole cane, middle section is spliced with whole cane and the tip is split cane. The butt and tip guides are agate lined, sliding alloy reel fittings, aluminium winding check, dark whippings, blued bronze ferrules (slight knock), black button protector. The Milwards logo sits directly above the winding check. The cane used for this rod is some of the finest cane, there is however a small hairline split of around 3cm to the middle section which is reflected in the price. I don't believe this will affect the performance of the rod in any way especially considering the rod is intended only for small river fish like Roach, Dace ,Perch and Bream. This really is a wonderful rod with a lovely fast action. The rod is very straight and incredibly light in the hand, having been built with very fine cane indeed. The rod was restored prior to my acquisition yet the varnish finish is very good. Overall this is a fantastic rod which would really suit any collection and is ready for the bank.
