LYLE DICKERSON 8014 BAMBOO FLY ROD

All-original Dickerson 8014 marked as built in 1948. Lyle Dickerson rods need no introduction.  The Michigan rodmaker’s work is renowned for quality of construction and pleasing action.  This 8’ 2/2 rod is powerful with a 6wt line—a joy to cast.

Features down-locking reel seat over hardwood spacer, 5 ¾” cork, no hook keeper, Perfection stripper, darkened snakes, NS ferrules with coating, tan silk tipped black, original bag and tube

Condition is excellent original and ready to fish.  There is some slight roughness in the varnish on parts of the tips.  I have tried to show this in the final two photos.  It would benefit from polishing by a top-notch rod builder.  One tip has a slight casting set, which could be removed at the same time. The cork is uncleaned.  In the interest of authenticity, I have left the rod as I found it.  This is an investment-grade rod.
