Vintage Rods and Tackle From time to time we will offer vintage and used fly fishing tackle. Please check back often for new additions. We are always interested in purchasing or taking consignments of used cane rods, but visitors please take note: Because the value of any fishing collectible is largely based on condition, and because researching values is so time consuming, we can not offer free, sight-unseen tackle appraisals. If you’d like us to appraise your tackle for a fee, please contact us for more information and we’d be happy to assist you. If you’ve arrived here via a search engine because you’ve found an old piece of tackle and hope to learn its value, we are very sorry but we are unable to help you without seeing the tackle and charging a fee. All items are covered by our 3-day return policy. The customer can inspect or lawn cast any item for up to 3 days after receipt. If you receive an item and wish to return it, you will receive a full refund for the item provided it’s returned promptly in the condition it was sent. All returned items must be insured for the purchase price and packed appropriately.

Doak Miramichi Hand Tied Tapered Leaders We began making these for our own use a few years ago after being disappointed with the various manufactured leaders of the day. When customers asked what leader we used, the next question would often be why don’t you have them for sale, so we had to start offering them. Along the way, we developed a unique method of tapering and trimming the blood-knots to make them less obtrusive, which is a frequent complaint with knotted leaders.
No chemicals, heat, lubricants or saliva are used in welding the knots, but we think you’ll be pleased with the results, no matter how we do it. Every leader is tied by Jerry Doak and every section is carefully measured and inspected to ensure the highest quality and consistency. For darker rivers like the Miramichi, we use Maxima Chameleon which many salmon fishermen prefer for its abrasion resistance, excellent knot strength and just the right amount of stiffness to ensure a powerful turn over and great fly presentation.

I’m blown away by the level of support from fellow rail enthusiasts in building this site. Their willingness to participate in its construction with no prospect of financial gain, just the satisfaction of being involved, is bloody marvellous. Starting in May , Derek’s input has been a massive undertaking and there have been times when the pair of us – just two bungling old geezers with a mutual love for trains and railways – were on our arthritic knees by the sheer size of it all. And now here we are with three finished pages…or are they?
The interest shown by modellers has spurred Derek to suggest a series of articles on the ‘Britannias’ that will be of particular interest to model makers Since taking early retirement, Derek’s knowledge of all things power-driven led him to making a start on correcting the many anomalies he found in books and magazines regarding the BR Class 7MT Britannias. Derek’s research has taken him more than 6 years and his findings now run into three page on this site.
This is in complete contrast to his original reservations. He commented – ‘Whilst the first group of Britannias Nos are indeed very interesting, and in some cases diverse, the history of the final batch of engines Nos is somewhat mundane by comparison, and so whilst I feel confident of filling a page with information on the first batch it would be tricky to give the same result for the remaining engines.

The purpose of the web site is to share knowledge and increase awareness of the importance of Aberdeen and the surrounding area to the history of fishing. Here again I have tried to include photos of vintage flies – but I have to thank others esp Bob Frandsen for supplying me with photos of their interpretations of the patterns. Links and More , all web sites seem to have a links page, here I only list links that I use on a regular basis and would be happy to recommend – no advertising!
This page also contains some interesting William Brown design drawings from the early s P. Includes catalogue illustrations and an appriciation of Malloch. About me – well that’s about me and some old fishing huts! If you spot a fly with no illustration and want to contribute feel free! If you know of further flies from Aberdeenshire that I have missed let me know. Do you know other rare salmon patterns you think should be on Not Aberdeen Flies drop me an email.
Do you know more about the tackle makers again let me know. The Crosfield book I was asked to compile by the publisher, it pulls together all the writtings by and about Crosfield, some never published before, it also has illustrations and some pattern details of the flies Crosfield tied himself, I’m more of an editor and complier in this book.
HARDY RODS – YEAR OF MANUFACTURE
Sharpe set up his tackle manufacturing business in John Street Aberdeen. The company quickly established a reputation for quality and innovation in the design and manufacture of split cane rods for salmon and trout fishing, with the subsequent development of a comprehensive range of tackle, consumables and accessories. Indeed, the post war period saw Sharpes products being promoted by the British Council of Industrial Design and exhibited round the world.
However the continued success with traditional materials meant that it was slower to adopt the new composite materials which were starting to be utilised in the manufacture of fishing rods. As a consequence, whilst Sharpes was always highly regarded manufacturer for quality of materials and workmanship, it lost its world leading position.
Questions about Antique Reels: Brands and Companies Q1: Many of the questions received about older reels concern American level winding baitcasting reels mass-produced from the s to the s.

Hardy fly rod dating Jun The concept for the series originated in with Cedric Messina, a BBC producer who specialised in television productions of theatrical classics, while he was on location at Glamis Castle in Angus, Scotland, shooting an adaptation of J. At the end of its run, the production was remounted for TV, shot on the actual Royal Shakespeare Theatre stage, using the same set as the theatrical production, but not during live performances.
Almost immediately upon pitching the idea to his colleagues, however, Messina began to encounter problems. Free webcam to webcam chats xxx He had anticipated that everyone in the BBC would be excited about the concept, but this did not prove so. However, despite this level of experience, they had never produced anything on the scale of the Shakespeare Series. Although An Age of Kings, which was the most expensive and ambitious Shakespearean production up to that point was a critical and commercial success, The Spread of the Eagle was not, and afterwards, the BBC decided to return to smaller scale productions with less financial risk.
