About This Rod
"How lucky I was to find a rarely seen Horrocks-Ibbotson Chancellor with the Jumping Trout decal." Matt intended to use this rod himself and started by replacing the orginal Bakelite Spacer and reel seat with a walnut/Aluminum combination. All sections were carefully straightened to repair warps in the bamboo.
Discoloration and damage to the varnish were removed with a light sanding paying extreme caution over the decals. Matt's final touch was to apply a light coat of marine spar varnish to protect the rod.
