Manufacturers of First=Class Rods and Tackle.



Farlow's "Perfect" Cork -Handle
Greenheart Salmon Rods for Ladies.

These are made in 3 pieces, 14 ft. and 15 ft. The grips are
made of solid cork, thereby dispensing with the wood that is
usually left for the grip. The cork handle has a hole bored through
it to receive the butt, which is the same size under the cork as
above the grip. Consequently the play is continued to the winch,
thereby giving greater casting power than ordinary Rods of the
same length.

Suction Fittings, Upright Rings, and Revolving Head Rings.
Two Tops and Top Case.

i4=ft. Rods weigh about 23 ozs. Price 2 15s.
1 5 -ft. Rods weigh about 26 ozs. Price 3 5s.

The Reel recommended for the i4-ft. Rod, size 3! inches, weighs
10^- ozs. Price 3.

For the i5-ft. Rod, size 4 inches, weighs 12 ozs. Price 3 55.

These Reels are made of Alloyed Aluminium, and can be
regulated to any stiffness at will.
