I've posted a couple rods on here for ID help. Well here's another one I've dug out of the closet and have not been able to find any info on. It is 2pc., measures 8'4". Decal says Cisco,Cordes Ingram & Smith, Gateshead, Fishing Rod Manufactures. In script "The Dilston ". In the last pic of the female ferrule it is over wrapped and seems to be a small piece of metallic material under the wrap. Looks gold in color. Maybe small piece of gold lucky charm???Makes one wonder. Any help on history and or value would be great. Thanks in advance

Hi Cuda

I think your rod is British - Dilston is a small town on a tributary of the Tyne, a river in Northern England (as in Newcastle on Tyne). Gateshead is the town on the South bank of the Tyne where Newcastle is on the North bank. It also has "the look" of a fairly standard British two piece, though these were usually 9' - bridge guides throughout?

Can't as yet find anything on the maker/retailer - (web search is compromised by the presence of CISCO the router manufacturer) but I'll keep looking...

Best

I ran into the same rabbit hole's. At least it's narrowed down to England.
