Not quite THAT old Fred
I was lucky enough to know a chap called George Aitken who lived close to the River Tweed in Scotland. In his earlier years he was a champion salmon fly caster and had an awesome collection of old cane and green hart rods. He also had a collection of hand-built lines. I had trouble lifting some of the bigger ones in my late 20s! Sadly he passed away several years ago and I never knew what became of all that wondeful gear.
