The quintessential rod designed by Tom and built by Gerri was the 2pc 8'6" 5wt graphite rod. The 865 was a go-to rod during Tom's guiding days because it combined the versatility of a 5wt and the shorter casting stroke found in 8'6" rods. Tom preferred the 8'6" length for accuracy and presentation while casting. Built on a clear blank with up-locking hardware, a western cigar grip and an American walnut burl reel seat insert. Serial Number: 22-5-29
Price includes premium TMR red graphite rod tube as well as shipping/insurance. If you would like to upgrade to an Al Swanson wood tube or heirloom tube, please inquire about cost and timing.
*$50 for shipping and insurance anywhere in the US will be added at checkout*
