For sale here is a FE Thomas Special Streamer Bamboo Rod 8'6 3/2 for a 6/7 weight. Serial #H385 is listed in the 1941 Thomas ledger as a 8 1/2' Thomas Special, Streamer taper, with Hardy style locking seat, Payne style grip, Dark Brown silk tipped with Green, and weighs 5 3/8 oz. It was completed on 9/16/1941, and delivered to Marshall Field on 3/16/1943. Ferrules are 11/64 and 18/64. Fixed hook-keeper. The rod was refinished by Jim Schaaf in 1997 and remains in excellent+ condition, although he applied red tipping to the wraps instead of the original green as noted in the Thomas ledger. Comes with a replacement bag and original tube with only the slightest remnants of the original Thomas tube decal. These Streamer rods are hard to find and wonderful fishing rods. The fact that this one has been refinished doesn't take away from its value as a rare FET rod. Reasonable offers are always welcomed.
