For sale here is a FE Thomas Browntone Bamboo Rod 8'6 3/2 for a 5-6 weight. Serial number is #EF137 and is listed in the 1947 ledger as an 8 1/2' 3pc Browntone Fly rod, with Hardy style locking seat, Thomas grip, Dark Brown silk tipped with Green at the base of each section, and weighs 4 1/4 oz. It was delivered to Abercrombie & Fitch on 4/6/1947. Ferrules are size 10 and 16. The rod is original and mostly in very good condition. One tip however has been broken about 4 1/2" from the top, but it appears all of the cane is still present, wrapped loosely with thread to secure it until a much-needed repair can be carried out. The other tip is fully intact but has a set in it. The ferrule fit on both sections is very tight and the ferrules need to be professionally cleaned. Comes with original bag and tube with Thomas tube label.
