One of the things that Dickerson's are noted for is their simple, unadulterated finish. Dickerson cared most for function than aesthetics. It's one of the things about this rod that appeals to me.
The color is natural. The wrappings are simple and plainly done. The ferrules are purely functional. There's a Scandinavian simplicity to it all.
I suppose I've now taken that second step towards bamboo geekdom. First I bought one of the things and now I'm researched it's construction. Next I'll probably start thinking about the wisdom of hollow butts on this sort of taper. Until then, I think I'll climb out of the rabbit hole and just fish it a bunch.
|It just seemed right to match this rod with an ancient Pflueger.|
