Dickerson Model 8013 Bamboo Fly Rod 8' 2/2 #5 [SALE PENDING]


A Dickerson Model 8013 bamboo fly rod, 8', 2-piece, 2-tips, built for a #5 line. The overall condition is fair to poor. 1 tip is 1/2" short and has an extensive overwrap below the third guide down from the tip. The full length tip has re-wraps on the bottom two guides. The stripping guide on the butt has some bend to it and the wrap is damaged. The "D" in the Dickerson script is 90% gone. The rod weighs 4.1 ounces. The corrosion on the male ferrule does not allow me to assess the rod action or straightness. The cane color is a medium wheatstraw done in a three up node pattern. The wraps are brown with black edges. The varnish condition is fair to poor. The step ferrules are oxidized. The grip is a 5 1/2" long blunt cigar. The downlocking screwlock and pocket cap look original. The varnished walnut spacer has poor quality varnish. The rod is packed into a light brown cloth bag with the aluminum tube with some dents and scratches but it is original. A good candidate here for someone who would like to refinish one of Dickerson's best loved tapers and turn it into a good fishable rod.

Your shipping estimate will be calculated at checkout and if you have any questions please contact us. Please note the buyers are responsible for any applicable import duties or fees that may levied. Due to the importance of packing items carefully please allow up to two weeks for arrival (depending on how busy we are) though we certainly do our best to get items to you as expeditiously as possible.
