For sale here is a Thomas & Thomas Henry's Fork bamboo rod from T&T's Individualist Series. Serial #4401.
From the early 1990s catalogs which provided descriptions of each rod, "A longer 8'6 rod for #5 line that's perfect for light line trouting on bigger waters. Medium side of medium fast dry fly action and extra length that allows better control of drag. Smooth casting with minimum effort."

"Every Individualist rod boasts a hand-rubbed, high-gloss varnish finish".
Clear silk wraps with brown edges and a black band at the ferrules, tip tops, and winding check. Comes with original bag with stiffener, brass-capped aluminum tube with label. The rod weighs 6 1/8 oz.

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.
