The first 800

by T&T on May 14, 2012

A couple weeks ago, we mentioned the fact that the first time Thomas & Thomas offered a catalog, Tom Dorsey and Tom Maxwell received 800 requests almost immediately. A groundswell like that feels more like something you’d get in response to a social media campaign today—instead of a single print ad in 1969.

Well, in the spirit of that auspicious event, and our deeper dive into the realm of digital and social media, we’re holding our very first Thomas & Thomas fly rod giveaway.

When we reach 800 likes on Facebook, 800 follows on Twitter and 800 subscribers to our monthly newsletter, we will draw one lucky winner from that pool. That winner will be able to select one rod from any line that is presently in the T&T catalog—except for bamboo. Our apologies to the T&T bamboo faithful.

One rod from any line, in any weight and any length. Helix, Horizon II, NS5, SSS, TNT, Spey, Switch and even Heirloom glass lines are all fair game. From big salt to small stream, the choice is yours.

Maybe you’ve always wanted to own one. Maybe you already do. Either way, this is your chance to own one of the finest, hand-crafted, American made fly rods on the market today—and all you have to do to be eligible is be one of the first 800 to like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and subscribe to our monthly newsletter (click here to subscribe to the newsletter).

Let’s see if we can get any faster of a response today than The Toms did in ’69.

Spread the word…and good luck!
