The rod is in mint condition as I doubt it has been used more than once.
All of Paul’s split cane rods are hand-built and finished by himself and he aims to achieve a good quality service and each rod is inspected by himself before leaving his workshop. All rods are supplied with a good quality rod bag.
There is not much to say about these famous rods that hasn’t already been said before. Such was their popularity amongst anglers, every rod building manufacturer of the time brought out their own version of the Avocet and it is still being offered today by modern rod builders.
This old favourite is a lovely rod to use with a crisp sweet action with a whole cane butt and split cane middle and top. With this rod, Paul has increased the length to 11’4″ ft and also increased the length of the handle to 24″ as he feels that the original handles are too short. It has lined butt and tip ring, with hard chrome stand intermediate rings. Fine silk whippings are available in green or garnet with one inch spaced intermediates graduating to ½ inch spacing’s on tip section.
