Re: Who made "Brownie" Bamboo Fly Rod
A couple of things. The pat. is probably for the reel seat/handle not the fly rod. At one time America had some great bamboo rod builders and it is possible that the handle was made in America. Also, you said it had been refinished. The reel seat/handle could have been changed when the rod was redone. Nothing to stop some one in England from applying for the patent to protect their design in America. Especially if they were importing rods to America.
