Thomas & Thomas Fly ROds
The Rod You Will Eventually Own.
Established in 1969 by legendary rod builders Tom Dorsey and Tom Maxwell, company ownership evolved over time. Over the years the fundamental beliefs, values and singularity of purpose behind Thomas & Thomas were challenged but never abandoned. To this day, this purpose has kept Tom Dorsey creating the unrivaled Thomas & Thomas fly rods.
‘The relentless pursuit of innovation, superior quality and uncompromising performance in creation of the world’s finest handcrafted fly rods.’
And, it is this purpose which first attracted current owner, fly fishing enthusiast and entrepreneur Neville Orsmond. Acquiring the company in 2014, Neville and Tom share more than a common love and passion for creating superior fly rods, they share a vision – the revitalization of the Thomas & Thomas brand.
The success of this collaboration and shared purpose is evident today in the most recent portfolio of newly designed Thomas & Thomas fly rods. These are fly rods of uncompromising beauty and performance – in your hand and on the water.
Thomas & Thomas believes in many things, most of which are pretty simple. Things like being kind to people, doing what’s right vs. what’s easy, leaving things better than you found them and trusting the person next to you. Simple values they try to live by every day, on the water and in their work. They also believe in America, and in American craftsmanship, innovation and quality. It’s a big part of who they are and the success they continue to have. It’s why they guarantee every Thomas & Thomas fly rod to be 100% American Made. Thomas & Thomas rods are built by a select group of skilled rod building artisans, in their Greenfield MA factory. From the raw material preparation to the final layer of varnish — each step in the process is performed by a specialist with years of experience. Every aspect of the production process for every fly rod they sell occurs in-house, something that can't be said for many rod manufacturers these days.
Thomas & Thomas warrants its graphite and fiberglass fly rods and blanks against breakage due to defects in materials or workmanship for the life of the original purchaser as long as he/she retains ownership of the rod. The warranty shall be effective only for new rods purchased from an authorized Thomas & Thomas dealer and registered with Thomas & Thomas within 30 days of purchase.
This warranty is limited to the repair or replacement of the rod. Every Thomas & Thomas fly rod is carefully inspected prior to shipment. However, if breakage or any defect in workmanship should appear, simply send the rod or blank to Thomas & Thomas and it will be repaired or replaced. Repair of non-warranty damage to most Thomas & Thomas rods is also available for a reasonable charge. Materials and color may vary from those used on the original rod (for example, in the event that the model is no longer in production).
Warranty does not cover lost sections or lost rods, ordinary wear and tear, neglect or intentional breakage. A return shipping, handling and mailing insurance charge will be applied to repairs. Original owner is responsible for the cost of sending in the rod to be repaired (customer should insure) and any duty or taxes due on international shipments. This warranty does not cover damage caused by use for other than its intended purpose or through attempted modifications or customization of the finished rod or damage caused by others during assembly of a blank into a finished rod. In no event does Thomas & Thomas accept or assume any responsibility or liability for incidental or consequential damages related to or arising from ownership or use of the rod or blank.
