For sale here is John Pickard's rendition of the Dickerson 8014 Guide bamboo rod. John calls it the Model 8026 Guide - 8'0" 2/2 for a 6 weight line. The rod is in excellent condition.
Medium-dark cane finish with transparent caramel wraps and black tipping. Blued guides and ferrules. Bronzed loop hook keeper. Bright hexagonal nickel silver winding check. Reverse half wells grip with a very gentle taper. The cork is mildly soiled. Bright aluminum down-locking reel seat over a walnut spacer with a nickel silver butt cap. The ferrules are size 14/64 with a perfect fit. The rod weighs 5.10 oz. The rod has a wonderful, quick and powerful dry-fly action just a tad on the fast side of medium-fast. Comes with original bag and tube with brass fittings. A great opportunity to land one of John's fine rods. You will not be disappointed!
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.
