Selling a fibreglass float rod from Vortex (E.T.Barlow & Sons) who were based in Thames Ditton, Surrey. This was the first proper float rod I had and is about 45 years old. It is the Vortex Royal model.

The rod is 12ft long and has the typical action of a glass rod of its era, soft with a more progressive through action, very different from today's rods. It is green with yellow whipping. It is certainly not mint condition and there are a few 40 year old surface scratches (see photo) - it caught a lot of fish! There is no one in my family who would want this, so I like to see it go to someone who might appreciate it and maybe even catch a fish with it.

Complete with original rod bag and will be well packed for shipping. £30 posted.
Thanks.
