    I have an old Lew Childre Telescoping Fishing Pole that I would like more information on. It has a foil label on it that reads that it is Lew Childre and made in Japan. The part that you put a reel reads Fuji. It telescopes to 12 ft. I have only found reels on eBay but no poles from this maker. Can anyone tell me the value? It does not have any reel on it.... it's just the telescopic pole. Thank You!

      Hi and thank you for your comment on the possible date of my fishing pole. It's made of fiberglass.

      I have a Lew Childre - Lew's Bream Buster 10' , it has a label that has; Lew Childre & Sanders Inc. (it also has a note on the label --Service Policy: Return with $3.00 to Lew Childre & Sanders, Box 535 , Foley Ala. (no zip) Can someone give me a value of this bream buster? It was the first bream buster my Dad bought. He passed in 2005 at age 83 and he loved his fishing.
