Thomas Turner Fly Fishing Antiques is on a distinguished road
Default B James Mk4 cane carp rod formerly properety Richard Walker, provenence from family

Rare opportunity to purchase a piece of angling history, this B. James & Son, England, Richard Walker Mk1V 10’ 1” split cane carp rod was given by Richard Walker to his late son Tim Walker in the early eighties. We bought this rod and two others from his widow Lynn Walker on the 30th July, 2020 at her home in Biggleswade.

Lynn has provided a handwritten letter of provenance in my presence to this effect and the original copy will come this rod. Photographs of Lynn writing the provenance with rods alongside is shown in one of the images.

The rod is a superb example, having seen very little use, red agate butt and tip rings with low bridge intermediates, bronze suction ferrule and 28” cork handle, white alloy reel rings on butt cap, red button, a touch of varnish has been applied to the tip ring whipping, the rod is dead straight, tight ferrule and is a superb example, comes in original fitted cloth bag without B. James label.

****This is one of two Mk1V rods given to Tim by Dick, the other having been gifted to a T.V. celebrity. ***

I spent a considerable with Lynn looking through other Walker memorabilia, Arlesey bombs, Walker ties flies and signed books etc, and having meant Pat Walker in the past, it’s a joy to meet more of the family members.
