This is a circa 1907 Bristol telescoping steel fishing rod with a 1888 Hendryx reel #40. It is marked The Horton Mfg Co Bristol, Conn C. 1907 Feb Pat'd 9-'05. There is an extra shorter telescoping steel rod. The long extended rod measures 112" long and the extra shorter extension totals a length of 88" long. The line gets fed into the inside of the pole and gives a great strength for reeling in that big fish. It has the original cloth Bristol bag.
