    The rod measures 197 inches with the three lengths. There is an extra tip. The rod is made by Watson and Son 308 High Holburn. The rod has a paper label and probably was never used. I bought it with a pickup truck load of goodies for very little. The house had 30 or more fly rods and gear. The rod was made in the 1880s.

      Excellent info.. The quality of the rod is incredible, the guns must have been the same. Thanks
