2015 marks 175 years since Charles Farlow opened his fishing tackle emporium at 221 The Strand, London. From such a small beginning blossomed what is now Farlows of Pall Mall.

To mark this prestigious anniversary we have commissioned a special, limited edition range of commemorative items from precision-engineered reels, exquisitely hand-crafted rods, landing nets and wading staffs to fine pewter hip flasks, cufflinks, fly boxes and memorabilia.

From the hands of one of Britain’s finest bamboo rod building craftsmen comes an exquisite 175th anniversary model.

This exceptional 7’ 9” 5wt 2-piece rod is fitted with a nickel silver down locking reel seat, cigar cork grip, spalted alder spacer, black nickel guides with a black nickel and green agate stripping guide with green with black wrappings and three coats of spar varnish.

It is supplied in a customised Farlows black rod sock and a 2” diameter rod tube.
