I also bought recently the rod with exactly same marks:inside the oval is "Sportsman" P.G.CO. San Francisco.  Above the "Sportsman" is writing "Custom Built" and on the left is number 673.

It is custom made rod by P.G.CO. San Francisco on the Harnell blank.

Expertise

I can answer questions on custom rod building and rod restoration and rod repair for bamboo, graphite and fiberglass fishing rods. I also have experience in estimating the value of vintage rods and determining the original manufacturer.

Experience

I operate a custom rod building business providing fly rods, spey rods, casting and spinning rods in bamboo graphite and fiberglass. I also operate a custom rod building school where myself and other professional rod builders teach individuals to build custom rods. I have a personal interest in vintage rods and have a small collection of reference books and articles which often help shed light on the origins of the older rods.
