Default 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.

I sent you a link to the "Hadley" from another site. Linking other ff'ing websites is discouraged here, so everyone else will just have to wonder.

Rip and Frank, You both nailed this rod. Very impressive! As I dig through the mound of equipment I recently obtained I will post more questions. There is a Hardy Plakona and many 50's - 60's glass rods. Thank you.
