Dickerson, Lyle - Model 8013, 8' 2/2 5wt Bamboo Rod

For sale here is a Dickerson 8013, 8' 2/2 5wt in excellent used condition. Built in 1960 for Mary Wilson. The rod features bronzed snake guides, light agate stripping guide and transparent brown windings with black tipping. The top 3 snake guides on one tip are re-wrapped in slightly finer silk. Signature wraps on the butt section along with clear & bold script. All sections are straight and appear to be the original length, although the overall length is just shy of 7'10". Later-era Dickerson rods measuring slightly short isn't unusual, although a full 2" short is a bit more than you typically see. 13/64 step down ferrules fit perfectly and retain their bluing nicely. A bent loop hook keeper leads into 6" cork grip (clean and smooth), and standard down-locking reel seat over walnut spacer. A light buff to the varnish was performed by Glenn Brackett, and the tip ferrules received a light overcoat at some point. Medium fast 5wt action, one of Dickerson's most beloved tapers. Sold in the original light green fold over bag and brass collared tube with plastic cap (tube sticker is a later addition). The model number is engraved on the brass tube collar, and the original owners name is similarly engraved on the tube.
