<< Back to Vintage Rods & Reels

Beautiful c1939 Thomas Special, 9 1/2' Dry Fly Salmon rod with removable fighting butt.  Made for Edward Vom Hofe's shop.

3pc, 2 tips, All full length.  Weighs 6 7/8 oz.

Beautiful fine dry fly tips are in mint condition thanks to being stored in their original tip bag and aluminum tip tube.

The butt and mid show the typical signs of being stored in the original canvas bag (with hang tag), with some aligatoring in the varnish, and a few small chips. The signature wraps show a little wear and are thin in places, but nothing to worry about.

Rod guides wraps and guides are all original.  Rod has an Agate stripping guide, and even still has its serial numbered reel seat plug for when you are not using the fighting butt.

This beautiful casting rod would make an amazing Atlantic Salmon or Steelhead rod!
