Cane Roach Pole, Possibly Sowerbutt !!! Estimated that the pole stems from around 1920's
or 30's and possibly made by a company called Sowerbutts.
The pole has a number of increments marked on the butt that are 1" apart up to
12". The tip of the pole has a braid loop and it also has a metal eyelet about
12" down from there. The total length of the pole is about 19 1/2 foot when put
When disassembled, the top two sections fit inside each other as do the bottom
two sections. There is a cork bung for the top two sections, but not for the
bottom ones, I don't think there would have been one either.
The pole is in Good - Excellent condition, although a couple of whippings need
