FE Thomas Special Fly Rod 7'6" 3/2 #4


A nice FE Thomas Special fly rod, 7'6", 3-piece, 2-tip, and built for what feels to me like a #4 line. 3.2 ounces. Medium fast feel for a rod with full intermediates. The condition is excellent restored with very good quality workmanship. Blonde cane with a random node pattern. The main wraps are yellow with red edges and yellow intermediates with a pattern of red and yellow signature wraps and windaways at the male ferrules. Agate stripper. The ferrules are polished bright. The keeper is pinned to the front cork check one flat right. The 5 1/2" long cork grip is fresh turned to a medium cigar but tapers down to the front cork check. The reel seat is a well varnished butternut slide band and pocket cap. The cap is stamped "FE Thomas, Special, Bangor, ME" in a cartouche. #7 stamped at the bottom of the cap. Original green silk bag but I'm not certain if the tube is original.

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.
