Quality Fiberglass Rod Build with O ring Ferrules

Made for Roos Atkins

No Maker's Mark but likely Made by J Kennedy Fisher/The Fisher Rod Company.

Roos/Atkins was the name of a chain of upscale men's clothing stores based in San Francisco, California. It was formed through a 1957 merger of the Robert Atkins and Roos Brothers clothiers.

The Fisher Rod company was based in Southern California near Santa Monica Airport. The factory was eventually moved from Santa Monica/Inglewood area to Round Mound, Nevada. They made rods under their own brand names as well as private label graphite for Hardy (the Hardy Smuggler), Orvis and most others. The Fisher company also made the blanks used by R. L. Winston in its early fiberglass fly rods and later became known for the quality of their graphite rod tapers, which in the 1980s became a favorite of rod builders.
