Lyle Dickerson Model 761510 Bamboo Rod 7'6" 3/2 #5

SKU: VFT10648

For sale here is a Lyle Dickerson Model 761510 bamboo rod. 7’6” 3/2, best with a DT5 line. Circa 1939-41. Weighs 4 oz. Brown wraps with black tipping. Typical reverse half wells grip with downlocking reel seat and walnut spacer. Single piece loop style hook keeper. Original tube, non-original bag. The rod was restored by John Pickard around 2009. The sale is accompanied by a letter from John explaining what was done to the rod: Rod varnish was in complete melt-down and "glued" to bag. Original bag had to be cut away. Rod was given new varnish and rewrapped using the original guides. Thread from the Dickerson shop was used in the restoration. All original script on the rod was retained.  All sections are full length and original to the rod. No issues with the cane. Grip was left as is and is uncleaned and unsanded. In excellent plus restored condition.

Please note: the shiny marks on the mid and first tip sections in photos 2 and 4 are reflections from the bright reel seat, not blemishes in the cane.
