Trout Fishing Priest.
A trout fishing priest elegantly designed, well weighted and beautifully finished. This priest has a hardwood handle with a ball end and at the other end a 7
cm polished brass head. The weighted head is engraved 'Clint Ruddick' and P.G Bradley. Probably the names of previous owners or maker.

A 'priest' is a blunt ended baton used by Anglers to quickly kill fish. Known as poachers, game warden's or angler's 'priest' or even 'persuader'. The name "priest" is thought to derive from the notion of administering the "last rites" to the fish.
