bamboo rods and reel
Dennis Stone 8' 4/5 wt FE Thomas hollowbuilt bamboo. Three piece w/ 2 tips in like new condition.
Islander IR 4LA reel w/ 2 extra spare spools in like new condition, there are some rub marks on the reel foot. Two of the spools have never been used. Nice solid click and pawl reel.
Wright & McGill Granger Victory 8642 8.5' 5 wt. Three piece w/2 tips. One tip is a replacement built with original hardware but both are full length. Cork has some ridging. Fishes great, but not a collector.
Eric Terluin 8' 3" 5/6 wt Pezon Powerplus taper. Two Piece w/ 1 tip. Very nicely finished. Slight set in tip shows up at times, but does not affect anything. Cloth bag but no tube.
Heddon Bluewaters 8.5' 5 wt 2F ferrules. Three piece w/ 2 tips. Had the plastic on the grip when I got it which was very brittle and cracked off. The rod appears to have never been fished. Original bag and tube. The ferrule on the first section does not pop when taken apart. I would have it refitted ($25 was quote I got) for peace of mind before fishing.
I am looking for Salmon River (Great Lakes) steelhead gear to trade for. I bought an 11' 8 wt Redington switch rod and Nautilus CCF 10 so I am looking for another setup like a 7 wt switch/short spey setup or a 10' 7-8 wt 4 piece singlehand rod. I like Nautilus, Tibor, Abel, Hardy reels. I am also in the market for new Simms Exstream waders size XL w/ size 13 boot.
