2227 - 7. Dickerson 861711

6,000.00

8'6", # 5 to 6 line, 3-piece, 2 tips, bag and tube.   I refinished this rod about fifteen years ago.  It may of been fished once since.  The rod was built in 1933 for a lady.  It is dated and has her name on it.  There are two different tips light and heavy this would of been a special order.  This was a more common request in the days before nylon leader material.  In 1933 the tippet to fish a sixteen fly had about 1/4 lb. test.  So the lighter tip bent before breaking the tippet.  The lady and her husband who had this rod built were  Dickerson's biggest single customer.  I can see them having many discussion and fish tales about rods.  One of the strangest  they had atlantic salmon rods painted sky blue to camouflage them.  I had one of these about twenty years ago.  So I can see how these two different tips came about.  I have lawn cast this rod and it's a great rod with both 5 and 6 wit lines for me.    The rod is in excellent condition to fish or collect.
