Dulling Fly Rod Ferrules
Many anglers object to the brightness of German silver ferrules, claiming that the flash of the metal in the sun alarms the fish. Undoubtedly this is true to a certain extent, but its importance is often exaggerated. The angler who wishes to may have the ferrules oxidized to his order. Ferrules of German silver will, in time, tarnish to a certain extent, dulling considerably. This tarnish can easily be removed, but it is a good plan to let it remain thus doing away with any extreme flashiness of the ferrules.
