For sale here is a Lyle Dickerson Model 9016 bamboo rod. 9', two sections with three tips! Very good plus condition overall with some varnish rubs, bag marks, and chips. Probably could use a touch up at some point, but the rod is definitely fishable as is. All sections are full-length and straight. The rod weighs 5 7/8 oz. Full wells grip with down-locking hardware and walnut insert. Classic 3x3 node pattern on all sections. The ferrule fit is very tight and excellent. The extension butt is missing. Comes with replacement bag and original brass-capped tube. The rod doesn't appear to have ever been repaired. A solid light salmon/steelhead rod!

According to a family member, the rod was made for John Knowles, author of "A Separate Peace" and given to him upon his graduation from Yale in 1949.
