Free reel !

First one up can have it! I have a G Loomis GL8.9.10 Synchroteck reel I would like to give away. Originally paid $375 plus tax. I have not used this reel in over 20 years, so time for someone to start putting it to good use. Has neoprene cover and instruction manual. I would like/hope that the reel goes to someone just starting out, someone young. It is in good condition and has backing on it, not sure what strength. All I ask is you pay for shipping. Thanks for looking

I remember those reels. It's a great reel and a fantastic find for someone that needs a reel.

If Granntheman falls thru, I would also happily take it.

Hopefully more time on the river and the company of good men (and women) will convey that.

Thank you for your kind words and thoughts. If I'm the one who gets reel it won't be in my hands for a long, I'm hoping it will fit on a custom rod I'm building to give to a new comer to Spey.

P.S. Don't judge a book by its cover. Maybe you've heard me referred to as Granny? I'm the volunteer guide/not-guide/nut on the Yakima river in Washington this will be my third season giving away 60+ floats for free

The worlds changed, cut the kid some slack... His post went up seconds before the next... He was first to the punch. He's young as the ad describes along with clearly/willingly stated his intent....Yet another speypage steal of a deal snatched up quick, what else is new... Heheh.

Congrats on your score and the seller for their generosity.

Listen folk. You all need to get your heads out of your cracks . He called it, he got it, and I would be shocked if he didnt have a PRIVATE conversation with the fine gentleman that put it out there. If he didnt, again, none of your business. He doesn't owe anybody a public show of giggles, smiles,and rainbows. Again, public form, PRIVATE TRANSACTION. Get a grip.

I think I fish, in part, because it’s an anti-social, bohemian business that, when gone about properly, puts you forever outside the mainstream culture without actually landing you in an institution. –John Gierach

Gonna lock this one. No need to bump it further and I'd suggest others find the positive in this transaction. Incredibly generous offer and incredibly fortunate recipient who is going to pay it even further forward.
