Thomas and Thomas Hendrickson Fly Rod 7'6" 2/2 #5

SKU: 301

An excellent Thomas and Thomas Hendrickson fly rod, 7'6" 2-piece, 2-tip built for a #5 line. Serial #5237. Nice medium-fast action. Very good condition, used but not abused. Grip is lightly soiled and there is a tiny amount of edge wear to the ferrule oxidation. Flamed cane in a mild "tiger stripe" pattern, 3-up node construction. As with most T&T rods, beautiful varnish and great attention to design detail. Wraps are clear with brown edges, black at the swiss ferrules. Unusually large 8" western-style grip is composed of small 1/4" corks. The reel seat is an all nickel silver uplocking screw lock with a nice mortised walnut spacer with black bands in the wood. The slide is paired off from the nut and is stamped "Thomas & Thomas, Makers". "7 1/2' #5 Hendrickson ser #5237" is inscribed on the wrap flat. The screw lock is polished bright and the ferrules oxidized. Original T&T bag and black crackle painted tube with brass top, collar, and bottom. T&T data sticker declares the weight at 3 3/8 oz. but my scale has it at 5.5 oz.
