Dickerson, Lyle - Model 7613 Bamboo Rod - 7'6 5wt

For sale here is a very scarce 7’6” 2/2 Lyle Dickerson Model 7613 for a five weight line. Delivered to John A. Patricks in 1953. Standard Dickerson brown wraps with black tipping. Reverse half wells grip with DL reel seat and walnut spacer. Original bag in fine shape. The vintage tube has an imprint of the original owner’s name present from an old label, so is possibly the original tube used during a material shortage. This Champion tube is the same tube Paul Young used and these two local makers were known to do business frequently.  Ferrule fit is perfect and the rod is in all original and lightly used condition. Short unmolested Dickerson rods in this condition are very rare, almost unheard of.

This rod comes from a very discriminating collector and fisherman. He's been collecting, buying and selling rods for a long time. He is very particular about evaluating rods and what he buys. He has owned close to 200 rods over the past 25 years and has only kept the very best in terms of condition and build quality. This rod and others represent part of his collection and we feel they are some of the nicest and most honest rods anyone will ever hope to find.
