Standard Thomas Configuration
Thomas Mahogany Rod - Note the standard flamed cane included for color comparison
The FE Thomas tapers are, in my opinion, the final refinement of the Catskill dry fly rod. Although having gained some popularity over the last decade they are still underrated. Refined actions and subdued cosmetics, these rods combine some of the best characteristics of Leonard and Payne.
Thomas Rods are now available in a Mahogany finish - see pictures belowfor an example - There is a $200 surcharge for the Mahogany rods due to the additional work the proprietary procedure requires. Limited Availability - Please Call
My FE Thomas Taper rods have flamed cane, are wrapped in fiery brown silk, blued Thomas style ferrules. There are several reelseat grip combinations.
1) Blued downlock nickel silver slide band and a cigar grip
2) Thomas style aluminum down lock screwlock with a cigar grip
3) Thomas style aluminum uplock screwlock with a reverse half wells
Any of the above can be ordered with either a Spanish cedar or walnut
