Vintage Fishing Rods

Looking for a vintage fishing rod? Whether you are a collector or simply looking for a timeless rod to enjoy your favourite hobby, you'll be sure to find a fishing rod to suit your needs. Stand out of the stream bank by opting for a classically beautiful fishing rod.

Style

Depending on the type of fishing you intend to do, depends on the rod you go for. Boat fishing or fly vintage fishing , pole or spinning, there are many different rods for whatever your preferred activity is.

Materials used

The materials of fishing rods can vary, but you can find some styles of rod in cane, carbon fibre, bamboo and fiberglass, amongst others. If you have a collection of rods, then choosing different materials will really add to it.

Brands available

From Hardy's to Abu Garcia's, there are many different brands of fishing rods to choose from. With Abu Garcia fishing rods , the Venturi series is made of carbon fibre and has a lure rating of five to eighteen grams, delivering on water performance and style in a balanced, lightweight design. Venturi spinning rods have a full cork handle, providing durability, comfort and an excellent performance, whilst still being great value for money.

Very vintage

Looking for something older? Why not try a vintage Hardy fishing rod that dates back to the early 1900s. Look for a serial number on the rod which will help you determine what year the rod was made in. You can find some rods dating back to 1902! The Hardy split cane wanless rod is a perfect example of why you may choose vintage fishing rods. This dates from the 1950s and is ideal for spinning for the likes of perch and trout. Quite rare, this edition would add value to a discerning collector of fishing rods.

Why not consider Shakespeare vintage fishing rods? You can find some models with ceramic lined butt and tip rings. Or you could consider a Shakespeare Targa spin which comes in a two piece set, making it compact and easily portable.

For Daiwa fans, you can find a variety of models of such as the Waggler Special, which is made of high modulus graphite and has a flat cork butt. You can even find some Daiwa rods in their original cases, ideal for collectors.

Vintage fishing rods are available in a variety of lengths, brands, fishing types and age and can be found primarily in a used condition.
