Winter Project Part II
I couldn't resist trying my luck on the bidding for another Edgar Sealey Octofloat Cane rod and again managed to win it at what I class as a reasonable price for a rod that requires restoration.
This rod again has a few minor things require doing to it, luckily all the eyes are in a rust free and good condition so dont require new ones to replace them, the whippings for the eyes are all loose so will be need replacing , one of the ferrules is also loose which isn't a problem and really apart from a rub down and a re lacquer the rod is good to go, its perfectly straight and sound and when done will join the other Octofloat trotting for Grayling.
