1956 Skinner & Reid

Not the most exotic rod in the world but I picked it up for a nice price. It was converted into a two hander by somebody that worked for Winston in San Francisco.

Don’t buy any. I’ll send you some stuff to see if you like it. I think you’ll like it. Although if you buy it you’ll have it long before I get home. Sometimes I forget what my house looks like! And my wife!!!
