Rawson & Perrin
Rawson & Perrin hand-planed fly-rods are made using the finest A-grade Chinese Tonkin bamboo with techniques and tapers developed through years of experience. All rods are made with great care and patience to critical tolerances and with great precision. The Monarch range is a collection of hollow-built, fast, modern tapers designed to cover most of the general uses for flyrods in the UK (6 ft 3 wt, £900; 7 ft 4 wt, £925; 8 ft 5 wt £950). The bamboo is selected to match the purpose of the rod and is tempered and coloured to the customer’s request. Handles are made from the finest flor-grade cork and hand-shaped to the customer’s desired style. Blued nickel silver ferrules, rings and a hardwood reel seat are added before the rod is finished with hand-turned whippings of the finest silk and several coats of varnish.
