I have been fishing, mainly in fresh water, since 1970. I used to read Outdoor Life, Field and Stream, Sports Afield, and a lot of books on fishing too, but I have virtually no idea what kind of fishing this rod is used for. It is a 4 piece, 14 foot fiberglass rod, made in England by The House of Hardy, under the GORDANS label. It is compromised however, and it needs a top section made. The top section is from a different rod, and I did not notice when I bought it. It was sanded to try and get it to fit. The guides could be used to make another section. The rod is from the 1960s or 70s I think. The components on the rod could be removed for another project. I don't think finding a blank to match would be too difficult, however. The first guide looks to be agate. It has a lot of potential. Expert craftmanship is seen clearly in the pictures.
