Talking Anderson 17.1 PROTO/line

yes!,i'm willing to let go!,,,a wonderful rod of long length suitable for all seasons i've tested it fully and can state unequivocably(gee,hope i speld that rihgt)or best put=she rocks!, capable of 125 ft casts even when you are as rusty as a `35 ford when you step out,one or maybe two small imperfections in the finish and of course`soiled cork',,mercy!,,,,i'm going to spend my time(at this point) in the drifter so i'll just have to make do with an 11.3 Anderson,,,

this comes with an AFS line/head and the section of T-14 that makes it all work happily,you can make any adjustments in `head' length to suit your style,the rod LOVES lower hand input anytime in the cast(i'm an upper hand dominate caster that cut his teeth on Daiwas),the rod is light,thin,and based upon a lighter thinner shorter rod hence the modulus`pulls it off' it is NOT a rod(like an English 18) where you must balance it like a pole,feels like a 15 casts like,,well,you'll never know unless you own it!

one of a kind but the warrenty is transferable and any(of the 6) sections can be replaced for a 50 dollar fee(i guess that's still the current cost),,ready?

500USD shipped worldwide with bag/line and a nice new plastic tube worldwide,i'll simply have to pick up a new 15,16 or 17.6??? from Gary or Bob this spring so go on and have some fun and fish anywhere worldwide and enjoy fish from 10 to 110 inches on this rod(i mean he!!,you're the only guy that has one so smile!

i'll add on a DT line i used with it,,great rod!,get it before i change my mind,freshly waxed,ferrules cleaned(i just have to get back in the boat,that`game' for me) you won't be dissapointed=she's a cannon capable of feeling`trout',,,wow!

just fishin'

17 feet is way too much rod for me and my local rivers but I found your post very entertaining!

I hope it finds a good home.

well

can't let my driftboat sit and turn to dust so that's what i'm going to fish with,she'll be he!!! to cast out there but i took the motor off to lighten it

(no really i went out 2 days ago,had fun(in the boat) and havent even put the`09 tags on it that's how much i use it and it'll be next April before the winters are `stacked' this far upriver looking for flies,havent ran the kicker since may`08

i used to fish the closest riffle(with two-handers) but a new bridge and a boatramp out to midriver pretty much ruined the`pool' that once was,in fact it stinks! it's a fast`slot' with`nobiters?,and there's always 6 worm tossers lining the bank so,let's get in that drifter(or sell it)there's a killerklean HYDE back your direction WRX_Canoe for sale on a well known site i won't mention,the exact drifter i want color and all

just fishin'

Somehow, I have trouble envisioning Hammer in a tupperware drifter.

I fish because the voices inside my head tell me to.

Talking started with a bondowagon

a`slide right',,beutiful blue thing weighed about well the guesstimates ranged between 5 and 800LBS,had plywood sandwitched in the bottom,real corky,looked beutiful rowed like stink like riding a 1971 750 honda on a mini-bike trail with flat tires

the HYDE has the Rogue bottom i demand those xxxxx's with the banana bottom,uh?,look great on a trailer!(i'll abstain from naming the brand due to it's popularity to each his own my current ride only draws an inch above the chine unladen/no kicker/rows like a dream/paid for and if i only had a good fishin buddy like`sunshine',,,,,,,,well when my aussie passed away i lost a LOT of fire since then,,,,,,,gotta run! make some cash! find some fish!

(see i can hijack my own thread 2 or 3 times!,,letsgofishin!
