[NAFEX] Red Currants?

Hello All,

This may be a question for Ed...

There are three red currant bushes growing in an old line
fence.  They fruits well and have berries like Red Lake,
only a little smaller, deeper red, and a little sweeter.
They are not well branched, nor suckering.

These three plants are small, stiff  branched and as hoary
as a 100 year old apple.  They have been in this location
since 1948 when the farm was purchased.

How do you propagate a currant that seems to only offer
hoary old wood?
