Thomas & Thomas | History
The Thomas & Thomas story, in many respects, is a direct reflection of nearly a half-century evolution in the fly-fishing industry, a tumultuous yet rewarding era of unprecedented social, cultural and technological change. An era that has seen a scientific and environmental renaissance, an awakening in the appreciation of handcrafted quality and unimaginable adoption of our sport.
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.
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 | American Craftsmanship
We believe in many things at Thomas & Thomas, most 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 we try to live by every day, on the water and in our work. We also believe in America, and in American craftsmanship, innovation and quality. It’s a big part of who we are and the success we continue to have. It’s why we guarantee every Thomas & Thomas fly rod to be 100% American Made.
Thomas & Thomas | Rod Innovations
Thomas & Thomas rods are built by a select group of skilled rodbuilding artisans, in our 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. We are proud to say that every aspect of the production process for every fly rod we sell occurs in-house.
