For sale here is a bamboo fly rod from the Dietrich Brothers of Pennsylvania - Dream Catcher Fly Rods. This is the "Timber Fiddle" model. 7'9 for four weight line. Two sections and two tips. Unused condition. Made in 2012. This rod was donated by the makers to the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum (CFFCM). Once again, CFFCM has asked us here at Vintage Fly Tackle to help them liquidate some donations for the ongoing benefit of the Museum and its wonderful cause of preserving the long-standing traditions and heritage of fly fishing. The rod is beautifully flamed with blued hardware, including cap and ring over a gorgeous burled wood spacer. The half wells grip shows no use. Red agate stripping guide. The rod exhibits a very nice medium fast progressive action. The Dietrich Brothers learned the great craft of bamboo rob-building from the late and great George Maurer (Sweetwater Rods) and their kind donation to support CFFCM's cause is reminiscent of Mr. Maurer as well.
We ship at cost to the buyer and in the majority of cases do so via UPS with full insurance and signature. There are cheaper options but our experience has been that you get what you pay for and that it's not worth taking risks when shipping what are often one-of-a-kind items. 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.
Unless otherwise noted, all items come with a 3-day inspection period during which they can be returned to us for a full refund (provided that they are in the same condition in which they left our shop). Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. If an item is returned, we will issue a refund within 10 days upon receipt. Refunds will be either administered by providing a check or, when possible, by canceling a credit card purchase.
