Thomas & Thomas - 7'6" 4/2 3wt Bamboo Rod
For sale here is an extraordinary 7'6" 4-piece / 2-tip 3wt bamboo rod made by Thomas & Thomas. Impregnated cane with 3x3 nodes, oxidized guides with carboloy stripper. Transparent tan windings with dark accents. The sections are straight and full length, and the T&T stamped ferrules fit perfectly. Strap & ring hook keeper, 5.5" cork grip (soiled w/ just a hint of ridging), and cap & ring reel seat over mortised wood spacer. There is some normal bluing loss to the nickel silver hardware from honest use, but the rod remains very well cared for. #2829, and the bold script is in Tom Maxwell's hand (tips are marked for ease of rotation). Medium action, it casts a DT3 beautifully. Just casting it on the lawn brings visions of high mountain creeks with clear water and colorful trout. You're unlikely to find another. Sold in the original bag and brass capped tube.
