But once in a while someone will bring in something really exciting!”, McBurney describes, “Just last year a lady brought in a Dickerson fly rod, truly one of the nicest made in the US. I inspected the condition and confirmed the maker. At seven and a half feet, the rare fly rod was appraised at $4,000”.
