Thomas and Thomas Henry's Fork Bamboo Fly Rod 8'6" 2/2 #5
A nice Thomas and Thomas "Henry's Fork" model bamboo fly rod, 8'6", 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #5 line. Serial #5725. The rod weighs 5.6 ounces on my scale. Modestly used condition. There is some soiling to the grip and the start of some casting cracks at the ferrule wraps. The action is medium fast. Impregnated cane, which has a flamed tiger stripe with three up nodes. The main wraps are brown at the keeper and ferrules and light tan at all of the guides. Carbide stripper and chrome guides and tip tops. The swiss ferrules are oxidized and have the collar on the males. The rod is straight and the ferrule fits are tight. The grip is 6 1/2" long and turned to a western profile with a hidden pocket cap for the nickel silver uplocking screwlock. The wood spacer is a varnished and smokey veined walnut. The screw slide is stamped "Thomas and Thomas, Makers". The rod packs into a tan cloth bag with a stiffener and a Thomas and Thomas pull tab. The extra large aluminum tube is black crackle painted with brass fixtures and the T&T data sticker.
We ship at cost to the buyer and in the majority of cases do so via UPS with full insurance and signature. There are cheaper options but our experience has been that you get what you pay for and that it's not worth taking risks when shipping what are often one-of-a-kind items. Your shipping estimate will be calculated at checkout and if you have any questions please contact us. Please note the buyers are responsible for any applicable import duties or fees that may levied. Due to the importance of packing items carefully please allow up to two weeks for arrival (depending on how busy we are) though we certainly do our best to get items to you as expeditiously as possible.
Unless otherwise noted, all items come with a 3-day inspection period during which they can be returned to us for a full refund (provided that they are in the same condition in which they left our shop). Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. If an item is returned, we will issue a refund within 10 days upon receipt. Refunds will be either administered by providing a check or, when possible, by canceling a credit card purchase.
