A friend gave me a bunch of old rods ... some glass, some 1st gen graphite and two really unusual rods (in this part of the country). I'm pretty sure they are spey rods.

One is bamboo, 3-piece with two tips, 12 1/2-feet long. The reel seat is slidin ring on the forward end and a fixed sleeve actually screwed onto the handle for the back. There are no length or line weight markings on this rod, only two decals ("Patent No. 444803" and "HAMLIN Maker Cheltenham").

The other is solid wood, 3-piece with 3/4 and 1/2 tips (both are broken). I've never seen a solid wood rod. Th butt section feels like a billiard cue. The ferrules ar brass and there is locking twist/pin on them. The reel seat is a sliding ring on the forward end and a fixed ring on the back. There are no markings at all on this rod.

I'm really just looking for any information I can find about these rods. I searched the internet to no avail.

Thanks for any help anyone can give.
