We've gone back to one of Tom's favorite graphite rod models for our special anniversary rod. Each rod will be built "Tom's Way" with a western cigar grip and down lock reel seat. Reel seat hardware includes special engraving courtesy of a certified master engraver. Featuring a reel seat crafted from salvaged Montana Juniper taken from fence posts on a historic Montana ranch, this rod harkens back to a bygone era of fly-fishing. The rod will arrive in a limited edition Al Swanson wooden tube featuring the 25th-anniversary logo. Only 25 of these rods will be built and will be individually serial numbered. They are meant to be passed down through generations, and fished hard.
** Each rod is custom built from scratch and the current lead time on a graphite rod is 4-6 months. The 25th anniversary rod is $2200 and we will take a $750 deposit now and charge the balance when the rod is completed.
