FE THOMAS "SPECIAL" 8 ½' BAMBOO ROD...$800 SOLD

Beautiful restoration of this classic rod by Steve Blake. Red and gold wraps, full intermediates, English twist snake guides, bayonet-style tip tops, agate stripper, skeleton reel seat, original bag with hanging tag, original tube. Rod weighs 4 3/8 ounces (by the tag). Ferrules are 16/64" and 12/64". Marked on the bottom of the butt cap, 6 or possibly 9 with a square over the top of the 6 (or bottom of the 9). This rod does well with a modern DT 6, but really comes into its own with a silk or Sylk line.
