FE Thomas Dirigo Bamboo Fly Rod 9' 3/2 #6/7


A nice FE Thomas Dirigo, 9', 3-piece, 2-tip, built for a #6 or #7 line. Fast action. 6.5 ounces. "H.398" stamped in the bottom of the pocket cap. Lightly used original condition. The front cork check has a split. There is a little bit of flattening to the inner reverse twist snake guides. The rod is wrapped maroon with a black edge at the keeper and male ferrules. The randomly spaced nodes are darker than the cane, indicating an oven temper. The butt shows a lot of seaminess. The ferrules are inexpensive drawn step-style with soldered water plugs. The grip is 6 3/4" long turned to a heavy cigar profile. The downlocking screwlock is turned in brass, not the usual aluminum. The pocket cap is nickel silver while the spacer looks like black bakelite. The ferrule fits are good and all the sections are straight. A brown poplin bag is fitted to the rod and the tube is original with brass fittings.

Shipping Information
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.
Other Terms
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.
