Degere, Francis – 6' 0" 1 Wt.

  • For your consideration is a Francis "Digger" Degere Flea bamboo fly rod. The Flea is a 6' 0" two-piece for a 1-weight line weighing 2.60 oz. All sections are full-length and straight.

    This rod consists of medium tempered cane with red wraps tipped black. Grip measures 6 1/4" in length. Nickel silver cap and ring over wood spacer. In my hand, the action is on the medium side of medium fast. There is some mild oxidation on the ferrules which will require cleaning for a complete ferrule set. Francis Degere made rods for over 50 years. You can find a book and a short documentary made on him online. His work is well respected and cherished by many. Includes the original bag and a wood tube with leather fastener.
