Thomas and Thomas Classic Fly Rod 8' 2/2 #5


A Thomas and Thomas Classic model bamboo fly rod, 8', 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #5 line. Serial #4033 and weighs 5.2 ounces on my scale. Very light use with a hint of hand soiling and slight brassing to the inner snake guides. Medium fast action and straight as a pin. Flamed and impregnated cane with a three up node pattern. Very light tan main wraps with brown edges and a band of black at the keeper and ferrules. Dark brown at the ferrules. SRMC carbide stripper and black snake guides. The swiss ferrules are oxidized and have a collar on the male. The grip is 6" long and shaped to a western profile with a hidden pocket cap for the uplocking screwlock. The screwlock is nickel silver with the "Thomas and Thomas, Makers" roller die. The beautifully varnished mortised spacer is walnut. The owner's initials are engraved on the end cap. The rod packs into a tan bag with a stiffener and brushed aluminum tube with brass fittings and the T&T data sticker affixed to it.
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.
