N003 - Extremely Scarce The White Wickham Big Game Gaff - I have only seen 2 others in 20 plus years of collecting. I have owned this gaff now for a number of years and reluctant to let it go. An extremely scarce and collectable gaff and one of the rarest of all Hardy gaffs. There are also only 3 of the White Wickham reels known to exist. Perhaps the gaffs were also limited. The gaff hook is made of 5/8 inch and 1/2 inch rustless steel, with a barb to prevent the gaff slipping out of the fish. There is a very sturdy brass eye hook  for a length of rope to be added to hold the fish after the gaff has been set. Overall length 4 ft (120cms), Handle 1 ft (30cms) Circa 1930's, fully stamped with Hardy stamp, by appointment royal coat of arms and "The White Wickham" name all engraved, Overall a beautiful and ultra rare item. - £Sold
