Upstate last week, I found my dad’s old fiberglass fly rod in the boat shed. I think he bought it in 1963, or maybe 1961, not sure.
It’s called the “Mohawk Deluxe.” Manufactured by the Horrocks-Ibbotson Co, Inc., of Utica 2, N.Y., U.S.A.
It also has “Rainbow” no 1407 1/2, 7 1/2 ft.
Tournament Taper rigid butt-sensitive tip
There’s also a gold sticker that says “Made from Scotchply 3M Company Epoxy Fiberglass”
Off to give it a proper test…
