Vintage Helical Casting Reel Co, Split Cane Two Piece, Combination Spin/Fly Rod
This is a Genuine Helical Reel Company, Combination Split Cane Trout Fly Rod and Spinning Rod. It comes with a different tip for each method.
The rod consists of a cork handle with screw lock ferrule. The butt carries the Helical Trade logo. It then has a butt section into which can be screwed the choice of Spinning or Fly Fishing Tips. The butt section has lined eyes as does the Spinning Tip Section.The Fly Rod Tip has offset, bridged eyes. The last of these eyes has suffered from corrosion and will need to be replaced. I cannot say whether the Cane has been degraded by this action. The spinning tip gives the rod a length of 7'6" and the fly tip a length of 6'10". Some of the whippings may need attention.
