"Joseph Braddell & Son"


3 Piece Rod


Spare Tip


This fabulous vintage  "Joseph Braddell & Sons Ltd." greenheart rod is in as "found condition" and it has not been restored or repaired by us.

 The rod measures approx 10 foot 3 inches, including the handle, in overall length.  The joint fittings are in solid brass, and have a quite a complex method of securing the rod sections, the bottom piece of the joint slips inside a brass sleeve on the top section of the joint, this is then held in place by a metal spring clip which in turn fits over a brass ring and this is then tightened by screwing the brass ring up a threaded section of the joint, I have not come across this type of joint before and it  really is a piece of quality engineering. All of the rings are present and well attached and the red whipping is in good order. The rod still has both of its' turned joint stops, unfortunately, the spare top section has been damaged and has had the tip replaced, albeit, very well.

The reel seat, ring and fittings are in solid brass with "J. Braddell & Son, Belfast" and "Flexible Grip" engraved in to the butt. The handle is finely stitched leather.

This rod is oozes quality and must have been expensive when first produced.

It still has its' original bag, this has suffered over the years with the leather top and bottom showing the most damage. 

 The rod feels lovely to hold, well balanced, sturdy, and has taken on a super depth of colour over the years of use and is very evocative of fishing and fishermen of the past.

The photographs form part of the description, please take a little time to view them. I have tried to show any marks in the pictures. Just click on the pictures to supersize for extra detail. If you do require more photographs or information please ask.
