Fishing pole

Discussion in 'Tackle Talk' started by camshaft, Sep 14, 2008.

  1. I was cleaning up around the house and I found a soft sided fishing pole case that said True Temper on it. when I opened it there was a fiberglass looking pole on the outside of a steel tube and there was a handle on the bottom of the case. when I looked in the tube there was an aluminum fishing pole that fit into the handle which the fiberglass one didn't. Looking into it further the handle says The American Fork & Hoe CO., Geneva, Ohio. Any one ever heard of it?

  3. For some reason I could not get a pic of the aluminum pole but it says oxford on it .

  5. I say either way you have a really nice piece of American fishing history on your hands there.
