Lyle Dickerson 8014 Bamboo Fly Rod 8' 2/2 #5


A Lyle Dickerson model 8014 bamboo fly rod, 8', 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #5 line. Refinished. Inked "RW Cunningham 1969" on the butt. Very strong full flexing action. Blonde cane with light brown wraps with black edges. Carbide stripper and chrome guides. The butt is a three up node pattern construction but the tip is semi-random (at the same spot on both tips there is a confluence of four nodes, 3 adjacent, and skip, node, skip). There are also several seams adjacent to the nodes, one on the butt, others on the tips. The step ferrules are oxidized and the rod is straight. The grip has been sanded and cleaned and is 6" long and shaped to a full wells profile. The seat is an aluminum downlocking screwlock, typical of Dickerson, with a varnished walnut spacer and nickel silver pocket cap. Gray cloth bag with an aluminum tube. The brass collar has the owner's name artfully engraved around the edge and a black plastic top.

Shipping Information
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.
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.
