Lifetime collection of fly fishing and tying for sale

Here is the current update as of Feb 8th at 9:40 AM....

I have a very good friend who has decided that after more than 30 years of fly fishing, and tying, he is getting out of it all together. He kept his equipment and materials in tip top
condition. He was one of the most anal guys I have ever known about his gear. Here is a list of all of his stuff for sale.

BOB has now joined this thread and has his entire list of items for sale below...he goes by FLYTIME. His list has been edited, and ALL sold items have been deleted for ease of reading....scroll down gents for the current items. Thanks

I haven't finished processing that whole list in my head, but... DAY-UM.

Does his email address indicate his new obsession, or just a remaining one? :P

Guys...please direct all your questions and requests directly to the fellow selling this stuff. His contact info is highlighted in red.

This keeps the messages, and their order from getting all muddled up with a middle man.

Bob will answer all your questions and send photos

I am interested in a few of the books listed. Would you PM me the prices for "Salmon Flies" by Poul Jorgenson, "How To Dress Salmon Flies" by T.E. Pryce Tannatt and "Steelhead Fly Fishing & Flies" by Trey Combs.

Thanks
Chris

Hi everyone....I am the fellow who is actually selling all the items that Norseman posted above....I will copy/paste his post in here and anyone can contact me directly...sorry I took so long getting to this...kinda swamped in my "Other" life. A lot of the stuff is gone but there are still a bunch of great deals on some fine gear. Tight lines. Please rely on my updates so the Norseman doesn't have to duplicate everything that I do here.

Cheers
Robert

For any of you who are interested in more "Collectible" Hardy reels I also have an LHR Lightweight "2 screw" model and a "2 screw" Princess which has 2 extra spools........Both are in excellent condition. Reels and spools are empty...no lines included. I had not intended, initially, to sell these but I know I will not be using them and they deserve a good home. I am asking $300 each and $50 for each extra spool. I will sell the spools separately but will not sell the Princess unless the spools go with it or before it.
