WTB - Thompson 500 or 100
Looking to pick up another Thompson 500 or 100 to add to the pair I already have. San Francisco made reels are great, but if you happen to have one marked San Jose, so much the better.
I'm new to this board, but have a good reputation over on Clark's bamboo forum. There are members here on Spey Pages who also are active on Clark's, so it shouldn't be too hard to check me out if you feel the need.
I'm willing to pay cash, but I've always been a fan of trade. If interested, I have some nice vintage spey/switch sized reels to trade for the right Thompson. Leaded 3-screw St. John, a St. John size Dingley marked Ogdan Smiths Zefer, possibly a mint 3 3/4 St. George with extra spool...
Anyway, we can work things out. If you have a Thompson you'd be willing to part with, I promise it will go to a good home. Please feel free to email me at:
