FE Thomas Dirigo Fly Rod 8' 3/1 #5


An FE Thomas Dirigo model bamboo fly rod, 8', 3-piece, 1-tip, and built for a #5 line. 4.3 ounces. Medium fast action. Original used condition with some cosmetic casting cracks at the ferrule wraps and some minor varnish chips. Medium tan cane color with gold main wraps and red edges at the keeper and male ferrules. Orange colored agate stripper and reverse twist snake guides. The male step ferrules are one piece drawn rather than soldered. The 6" long grip tapers to a slim cigar at the keeper and has plenty of hand soiling. The seat is a downlocking aluminum screwlock with a nickel silver pocket cap. The spacer appears to be black bakelite. The stamp reads "Dirigo, FE Thomas, Bangor Me" with no serial number. The rod packs into a cloth bag and aluminum tube.
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.
