We make the kind of rods others would make in an ideal world. American made quality and authenticity.
Thomas and Thomas is the last truly authentic American rod maker. Every rod we offer is built, in-house, to the highest quality. We retain the personnel, equipment and know-how to build premium fly rods from bamboo, fiberglass and graphite materials. To the best of our knowledge there is no other company that can say the same.
Take confidence in the fact that every rod that bears the Thomas and Thomas name is designed, tested, rolled or milled, baked or glued, ferruled, mounted, wrapped, varnished and dispatched from right here in New England. We are fiercely proud of this and unwavering in our stance. It may restrict our output but we have never desired to be the biggest, only the best.
It's why you won't find our products mass produced for 'big box' stores or sold at heavy discounts through clandestine clearing-houses. We are comfortable with who we are – America's premium fly rodmaker.
If you are visiting Massachusetts please get in touch and arrange to take a walk through our workshop. Around each turn you will find small teams of talented craftsmen gathered around seemingly antiquated machinery. In harmony, they work steadfastly to produce the world's finest fly rods – rods worthy of our founder's guiding goal to build 'the rods you'll eventually own'.
