For sale here is a John Pickard Model 7625 bamboo rod, his rendition of the classic Lyle Dickerson 7613 taper. Made with pre-embargo cane. 7 1/2 feet, 2/2 for a 5 weight line. Rod is in excellent plus condition. The oxidation on one tip section doesn't exactly match the other tip and the butt section, so one would assume John made the second tip at a later date. Same 3-up node pattern throughout. All sections are full length. The rod features a very authoritative medium fast action. Blued hardware with bright aluminum down-locking reel seat. The rod weighs 4 1/4 oz. (with either tip) Ferrules are 13/64. Comes with original bag and tube. A great opportunity to land one of John's fine rods for much less of a price than most we've offered here. You will not be disappointed!
