WTS-Burkheimer 9' 7-8-9 "Bonefish" (bumped)
I picked up this excellent Burkheimer "Bonefish" rod for a trip to the Yucutan.It was great for bonefish, as you'd expect, but it was even better for tarpon. This is a very accurate rod, and it was perfect for long, low casts under overhanging mangroves way back to where many of the fish we saw were rolling. It was fine with light flies for bonefish, but it was great with bigger flies targeting Tarpon, including some big ass mouse patterns that were absolutely deadly. And when you hooked up, the thing has plenty of backbone.
It's in great condition. The cork is in great shape and looks, as it is--very lightly used. No scratches anywhere on the rod. I'm the second owner. The first guy also used it lightly and, like me, gave it up when he didn't think he was getting back to bonefish country again. (sigh)
So to recap:
CFB 890 4r,
9' 7-8-9 4 oz
Price: $550 or so
(And thanks to those who noted that the bonehead didn't include the price for the "bonefish" in the original post).
Surfing sucks. Don't try it.
