Horrocks-Ibbotson Spinner

#0427 Horrocks-Ibbotson, Spinner, 6-strip varnished bamboo fly rod. 9', 3/1, 6/7 wt, 5-3/4 oz. Excellent down-locking screw-lock seat with marbled smoke gray tenite barrel. Very-good half-Wells cork grip, no hook-keeper as issued. Chrome stripper guide, all new blackened stainless-steel snake guides and 'Perfection' style tiptop. Purple wraps tipped Yellow. Bright bronzed heavy-gauge nickel-silver ferrules with rolled welts. Small medallion wraps just forward of the grip.

This early 1950's Horrocks-Ibbotson rod has the model name scripted in white ink, along with the 'Tonkin Cane' lettering. The maker name is in black ink. The lettering reads towards the grip as is usual with Horrocks-Ibbotson rods. The rod is handsome looking with deeply flamed (Hexi-Super-cane) sections. Supplied with a custom made, labeled cloth bag. A quality storage case is available.

This Bass-weight split-bamboo fly rod has been profesionally refurbished to near new condition. Genuine 'Tonkin Cane' gives this rod backbone and durability. All wraps and snake guides are new as is the new Spar varnish with its excellent finish. All three joints are the correct length.

The bamboo in this rod appear to be deeply treated similar to high quality 'Heddon' browntone tempered rods. The ferrules have a bronzed 'jewelry-like' finish, not common on H-I rods. This great looking rod is offered in a custom sewn segmented sleeve at a reasonable price for the collector or the fisher. Horrocks-Ibbotson 'Spinner'. Excellent $175.
