"The Chris Clemes Split Cane Rods are beautifully made and presented, traditional British rod making, and as a fishing rod as far as I can see this is exactly fit for its function
The rod and bag look simple and purposeful. The leather tube feels and even smells special. The display case takes it to a whole other level.
Somehow the ceremony of unlatching the brass catches and lifting the heavy lid seems appropriate with a cane rod, I suspect I would find it all a little too much, too ostentatious, for a carbon rod. Maybe that's because I know cane rods are hand-made, that someone spent years learning the crafts needed to make this, and then spent days making the rod in my hand."
