SRFS is now your Thomas & Thomas Dealership
We are proud to announce that the South River Fly Shop is the newest dealer for Thomas and Thomas Fly Rods. Those in the know will understand that this brand is not like a lot of others. They make limited numbers of rods in their Greenfield, MA shop and are very selective with regards to opening a new dealership. The initial order shipped out this afternoon and will be here by Friday.
www.itinerantangler.com says “Presidents have commissioned rods from T&T to give to heads of state and royalty. There is a business model for this type of manufacturer – think Bentley automobiles or Perazzi shotguns. Thomas & Thomas makes functional pieces of art.”
” We make rods for enthusiasts because that’s what we are.
We just don’t have many customers who are occasional fly fishers. This fact is supported by Field & Stream’s recent report that T&T ranks number three in terms of the rods used to capture IGFA world records. You may not find this remarkable – we’ve been making the world’s finest rods for well over forty years. But consider that we have only ever sold a comparatively small number of rods per annum compared to the brands that occupy the positions around us.” (From the T&T website)
