Bristol Fishing Rods

You might think that nothing can be more fun than going fishing with your own fishing rod and reel.  But let me tell you that collecting vintage rods and reels is a great hobby to get into. Some people enjoy collecting vintage steel fishing rods and the Horton Manufacturing Company made a great rod call a Bristol rod.

Bristol rods were made by Horton Manufacturing in Bristol, Connecticut between 1880s thru 1950s. The were a very popular quality steel telescoping fishing rod with fine fittings. Vintage fishing rods are very collectible today and especially the telescoping rods. Bristol was one of the first companies that created a telescopic steel rod and created many different trusted rods and reels throughout the early 1900’s and late 1800’s. Some of the first Bristol fishing rods and first Bristol fishing reels were created around the 1880’s and they continued to be popular enough to receive praise and be listed in magazines for as long as the 1930’s. Today Bristol rods and Bristol reels continue to be a popular collector’s item, even Bristol advertising continues to be a good item for collectors and antique experts worldwide.
