Douglas Duck Dickerson Model 8013 Bamboo Rod


For sale here is a Douglas Duck Model 8013 bamboo rod - 8' 2/2 5-6wt based on the classic 8013 Dickerson taper. Near mint condition. Serial no. 2092, made in 2000. 

Transparent honey-colored wraps and black tipping. The ferrules are wrapped in black and tipped in the honey/black scheme used on the guides. Deeply blued guides. The script is clean and bold. Bright nickel silver checks. The reverse half wells grip is 6 1/4" in length with a very shallow taper to the point of almost being a more Garrison-like grip. The cork is only lightly soiled. Simple nickel silver cap and ring reel seat over a darkly stained maple spacer. The Swiss-style ferrules are size 13/64 as indicated in the model number. The fit is perfect. The rod weighs 4.65 oz. though it feels lighter in the hand. Quick dry-fly action on the faster side of medium-fast with a very powerful butt. Even though the rod has been used only a few times if at all, the rod sections are not entirely straight if that bothers you. Original bag and tube included.
