It's with regret that I put up for sale my Meiser 15' Highlander Classic 789, customised by Bob.
When I first spoke to Bob about this in late 2011 I was about to go on my first BC steelhead trip the following year, and I wanted a rod that I could use for both the steelhead there and salmon at home. Bob advised me that I didn't need a 15' for the rivers I had intended, but I wanted an all rounder for which I could also use on the big rivers of the north at home.
As it turns out, it was too big for the steelhead river I fished, and I have gravitated towards the smaller/medium sized salmon rivers of England and Europe.
As it has gotten very little use and will not much in the foreseeable future, and added to the fact that I have in the meantime, become an obsessed fan of James Reid's bamboos, I therefore put it up for reluctant sale.
It features heavy duty dark nickel silver seat, Oregon Black Oak burled spacer, cork lower grip, fine black ring accents instead of the usual thick black rings, Autumn wrap and colour theme. The rod has my name on it but it could be removed by Bob or a good builder.
Rod has only been used for a couple of practice sessions on the Thames at Richmond.
Price: $680 plus shipping from the UK (we can work something out here for those in US/CAN). It's a steal as it was 4 figures.
