Re: info on vintage rod
The rod was made for "Coast to Coast Hardware", the fly rod was manufactured by Berkley and is a true temper blank which was branded by Berkley. When trying to find the history of these "multi-branded" vintage rods is to completely look past the writing or label on the rod and break it down by construction. The ferrule type/artistic design and the natural glass finish are a few properties unique to this rod.
