Thomas and Thomas Montana Bamboo Fly Rod 8'6" 3/2 #6


A nice Thomas and Thomas Montana model bamboo fly rod, 8'6" 3-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #6 line. Serial #5715. The rod weighs 6.5 ounces on my scale. Impregnated model. Lawn cast only. The action is on the faster side of medium. Built in a three up node pattern with mirrored tips. Flamed cane. There is a tiny cosmetic casting crack at the wrap on the butt female, but nowhere else. Light tan main wraps with brown edges, dark brown at the keeper and ferrules. Chrome snake guides and an SRMC carbide stripper and black tip tops. The swiss ferrules retain 100% of their original oxidation. The grip is 6 1/2" long and turned to a western profile with a hidden pocket cap for the all nickel silver uplocking screwlock. The spacer is curly maple. "Thomas and Thomas, Makers" is stamped on the slide. The rod packs into a cloth bag with stiffener and black crackle paint tube with brass hardware.
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.
