Jim Schaaf Dickerson 7612 Fly Rod 7'6" 2/2 #4


A Jim Schaaf rendition of the Dickerson 7612 model bamboo fly rod, 7'6", 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for what feels like a #4 line. "The Dickerson 7612" and the serial number "76-19-89" is lettered on the shaft above the grip. The rod weighs 3.8 ounces on my scale. Near mint, very lightly used condition, with just a hint of brassing to the inner part of the guides but few signs of use otherwise. Medium action. Medium light wheatstraw colored cane done in a three up node pattern configuration. Wrapped in brown with black tipping throughout, including four intermediates halfway between the keeper and the agate stripping guide. The serial number is inked just above the male ferrule on both tips. Oxidized step ferrules. The grip is 5 1/2" long and shaped to a medium cigar with a gentle taper to the front. The seat is an aluminum downlock over a varnished wood spacer and finishes with a pocket cap with the maker's make stamped opposite the pocket (the cap has a little bit of tarnish to it which should be easily polished out). The rod packs into a tan cloth bag and a black anodized aluminum tube with brass hardware and the original owner's name is engraved on the screw top.

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.
Other Terms
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.
