A nice FE Thomas Mahogany fly rod, 8'6", 3-piece, 2-tip, built for what feels like a #5 or possibly even a #4. 4.2 ounces. Full flexing action. Fully restored condition. Full intermediates in mahogany colored silk and the main wraps are the same. Agate stripper and period snakes. Excellent varnish. The cane is browntoned and the step ferrules are oxidized. The front cork check is also oxidized and the keeper ring is pinned on the wrap flat. Signature wraps at the cork check and windaways at the male ferrule. The grip is 6" long and a medium cigar profile tapered to the front cork check. The grip is original and has a tiny bit of erosion. The rear corck check and the cap and ring are all oxidized. The reel seat is restored mahogany. The pocket cap is stamped "FE Thomas, Special, Bangor, ME" in cartouche. #6 is stamped on the bottom of the butt cap. The ferrule fits are good and the full length rod is straight. The original green colored bag is missing the hang tag and the rod tube appears to be original.
