Last February I posted a sale for a bunch of my fishing gear. I was faced with a life changing event and needed resources to cope with it. Many of you shared your kind thoughts and bought some gear to help me out. I appreciate that.

Just as I began to think that we won the first bout in the game of life and death, I was proven wrong. So the battle continues although. I am not going to give up without doing everything I possibly can. So, I have decided to sale the rest of my fishing gear......here is the list. Please let me know if you have any questions.

All the items are described to the best of my ability. I will add pictures based on your requests. These are some carefully selected gear that are purchased with hard-earned money, no neglected/beaten up gear.

NEW ITEMS

A. Dyna-King Supreme Vise: Price $185

received this as a Christmas gift last year. Used it for a few dozen flies. Did not want to switch from my old and trusted Regal Medallion. so, this vise is sitting in its original box. Original box and all the paper work included. I have received this vise with a granite base that one of my friends made for me. Keeping the base. So this sale is for the vise only. I have a cheap c-clamp that I would be happy to include with this vise.

Duke, Is there any way that I/we can help you out with a donation?

As a forum member I would like to start off a small PayPal donation to help Duke out, who else is willing to help out a brother in need?

If someone knows how to go about the practical aspects of such a thing I’m interested in doing my little part for a long distance friend and spey brother that I have enjoyed mailing with.

Thanks for all your support. I have received a lot of very positive messages from you all over the last day and a half. I truly appreciate all of you.

I have updated the list this morning and plan to keep it updated as regularly as I possibly can.

The Bougle reel is still available. Several people asked for pictures. I am trying to get that done as soon as I possibly can. Thanks for your patience.

again, thank you so much.
