Cane Rod Information
I'll post an image when I can but do any of you cane rod aficionados know anything about a 1950's - 60's (?) vintage rod called, "The Hadley"? If I am reading the script correctly it appears to be made by "A. & R. Co." and it is 8' 3 1/2 oz in a three piece, two tip configuration. It has a half wells grip and cork spacer with a nickle silver slide and cap reel seat. It has clearly caught fish in its day but the varnish and joints are all in fine shape. It was owned by a gentleman who fished the Esopus before the days of the tube hatch.
