Thomas, F.E. – 8' 0" 3/2 with Tip Tube

  • For your consideration is an F.E. Thomas bamboo fly rod. This is an 8' 0", 3/2, 4wt weighing 3.70 oz. This rod was masterfully restored by Steve Blake. All sections are full length and straight.

    This rod is finished with golden honey wraps tipped black along with full intermediates. The 5 1/2" cork grip is followed by a nickel silver reel seat which has no dents. No stamp on butt cap so this is prior to 1910. Ferrules are 10 and 14 with a fit perfect fit. In my hand, the action is full flexing and medium. The tips reside in a diminutive bamboo tip tube with a slot in what appears to be the original bag.
