VINTAGE OLD ANTIQUE "TELESCOPING" FISHING ROD & REEL

This Auction is for a Vintage rod and reel ! Probably the original pocket fishing rod.

The rod is made of copper or brass?? with a cork handle and telescopes to 5 feet long when fully extended. Collapsed, it is only 12 inches. I tried to show all stages of the expansion of the rod to show that it is in great working condition and has no dents or dings in the rod, and the eyelets are all in great condition.

The reel is a Bronson Gladiator No. 3400 and it still works great.

THE ROD AND REEL ARE A LITTLE DIRTY BUT THEY ARE IN GREAT SHAPE!!!! I MADE NOT ATTTEMPT TO CLEAN THEM.

PLEASE LOOK AT THE PHOTOS I HAVE POSTED AND IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, I WILL DO MY BEST TO ANSWER THEM. PLEASE EXCUSE THE GLARE FROM THE LIGHTS AND FLASH. I TRIED TO PROVIDE NUMEROUS ANGLES TO VIEW ALL SIDES.

I AM NOT AN "EXPERT" IN FISHING TACKLE, BUT I DID ALOT OF RESEARCH AND HAVE DONE MY BEST TO IDENTIFY AND DESCRIBE THE ITEM(s) CORRECTLY.

All of my current auction items came from an elderly gentleman’s tackle boxes and fishing gear that I took in trade for work. I am not an expert on any of this, and have made NO attempts to clean the items other than lightly wiping them down with a damp cloth. I figured I would leave the cleaning to the experts, who would know what to use to best clean them. Good luck
