Thomas, F.E. - Browntone Streamer 8'6" 3/2, 6/7wt Bamboo Rod

For sale here is a very scarce F.E. Thomas Browntone Streamer, 8'6" 3-piece / 2-tip bamboo rod in very good original condition. 8'6" Streamer Specials are an uncommon configuration, and the Browntone grade is rather rare. The rod features medium flamed cane with heavy wire guides and perfection stripping guide, all wrapped in dark chocolate windings. All sections are straight and full length. 17/64 & 12/64 step-down ferrules fit perfectly. The mid-male ferrule has a bit of bluing loss, but the rest of the ferrules and the butt cap retain most of their finishes. Nickel silver winding check with integrated hook keeper and accent wraps above the grip. 6" cork grip is clean and smooth. Down-locking reel seat with aluminum screw lock over mahogany spacer. The pocketed butt cap is oxidized and has a provision for a fighting butt, though none is present. A strong 6/7wt with medium fast action. A fantastic rod from one of the legacy rod makers. Sold in the original bag and tube with worn F.E. Thomas decal.
