Our second item of news concerns an important but unhappy rod that was featured on the News page at the end of June. The scarce Conroy, Bissett and Malleson rod that had seen better days is now in the hands of Jay Edwards, one of the current crop of Colorado rod builders and restorers. It's not often an object leaves WVFFM, but in this case I felt it best that the rod should be in the hands of someone who can bring it back to it's former glory. Jay has promised updates and pictures as he works on the rod, so I'll be posting those in due course.
This Month's acquisitions include an interesting pair of reels by Smith & Wall.
I'm sure there will be more fun to share in the coming weeks so as ever, watch this space
