Grandad's Mornington Red

Postby yepi'mon » Fri Jan 05, 2018 8:22 am

Hi Guys

A few years back when I started getting into fishing my Grandparent's gifted me a rod that my G'Ma had made for my G'Da in the 80's.

G'Ma made a point of saying that at the time it was quite an expensive rod (I think she was a little annoyed that my G'Da never used it).

As I was packing it away yesterday I wondered about it's heritage and if anyone here can shed some light on it's background and the fellow who made it?
