Vintage Sam Carlson-Thomas Rod Co. 5' 1PC Fly Rod

<< Back to Vintage Rods & Reels

Here's a rare opportunity to own a very rare rod made by legendary rodmaker C.W. "Sam" Carlson!

This beautiful 5' 1pc stream and brook rod was made during the very early days of Sam's ownership of the Thomas Rod Co.

The rod features lightly flamed cane with Sam's typical Red/Black wrap and trim configuration.

The full cork cap and ring seat had some sticky glue residue on it, so the glue has been cleaned off, resulting in the seat looking clean again.

The rod has "Thomas Rod Co." and "#1104" written in ink on the shaft.

The rod is completely original with the exception of one guide having been re-wrapped.

No bag or tube came with this rod, but a new replacement tube can be ordered at the time of purchase!

Rods from the Carlson shop come around very rarely, and this tiny stream rod is one of the rarest of them all!

Item #1802 Excellent Condition Price Reduced $2295.00
