Back to the future.

A new 11' (if my tape measure is correct) custom made Boo 6/7 rod (built for me in the UK), a Hardy #2 salmon reel (never been lined, health went into the basket), a #7/8 silk spey line. Yes, a real silk line.

This all in prestine shape, (reel has a couple of tiny 'cosmetic Paint ticks') I take darned good care of my equipment. Rod has never been fished, Dog-Dog and I sat beside the Rogue River, rigged, conversed. "So what do you think of that run?" That's as close to fishing the rod as I got last December.

Poor Me. :rolleyes: First serious 'crash and burn' was a few days later. 911 works, nice young men scraping me off the living room floor.

So why sell? For me 'fishing' may be a history lesson at 73. In the house I now need to use a roll around 'walker,' thing actually has hand breaks!

Anyway, if of interest, PM me. Don't ask for pictures, I don't know how to do that. But gear is 'new in box' condtion. It needs to be fished.

Sorry to hear about your health ,Fred. That sounds like a sweet set up. Unfortunately the Canadian dollar being what it is today would make your gear about a million dollars. Good luck and remember the good times of fishing.

Dear God the Canadian Dollar did take a dive.

Last I checked it was (within pennies) 'dollar for dollar;' not any more! Currency Calculator (Canadian Dollar, US Dollar) - X-Rates

What caused the 'tank?????'

:eek:

Wrong side of the border for me as well. Hope it goes to someone who appreciates the great deal, and the man behind it. Best wishes to you, Fred
