In a time when smoking and fishing both offered relaxation and a moment away from the regular tolls of life. So when you collaborate the two activities, well.... so it's not really surprising that Hardy Brothers responded to a good commercial opportunity by commissioning and selling its Angler's pipe alongside general fishing tackle.
And of course, you would have a choice of Hardy's pipe reamers to aid you in making sure that your smoking device received proper and regular service.
The larger pipe reamer accommodates matches which can be used with the strike on the outside.
And a close up of the way that the pipes have been stamped to the side.
