Its probably fair to say that anyone who has an interest in Angling at some time or another has heard the name Hardy.
All over the globe, there are people who love to fish and in the universal
language of the sport, one name reigns supreme - that of Hardy. For well over a
century, House of Hardy has been renowned as the manufacturer of the finest game
fishing tackle in the world - the name is synonymous with quality and
excellence. Such reputations are not acquired easily, but it has never faltered
throughout the company's long history.

Hardy Cane Rod - The Lightweight Sheffield Style - very nice old Hardy float
fishing rod, green whips, whole cane butt and middle, with split cane top. Ferrules
tight, with both stoppers. Rod straight. Varnish finish bright and even, may have
had a coat of varnish during its life, or this may be the original finish - it is
difficult to say. Rod does look very attractive, and I don't think its had much
use. The usual Hardy ink lettering above the corks says, The Lightweight Sheffield
Style. The handle fittings are very well bronzed. The corks in excellent condition,
seem unworn. There is a matching screw in the end of the butt, to blank off the
screw threads. The no. on the butt cap is G 24738. Has a well-worn 3-section Hardy
bag which may well be the original. Overall length is a fraction over 11 feet.
