  1. Fished the Bay Saturday and the bite was tough. Stick baits took the most shots.
  2. Anybody notice if there has been any rise in the level over the past week or so?
  3. Like brand new. Not a scratch or mark of any kind on the lenses. I picked these up some years back for $325.00 and only got to use them a couple of times before I required prescription lenses. By far the nicest polarized glasses I've ever seen. Very light, very strong and extremely comfortable. $125.00 firm Pick up in Mexico or buyer pays the shipping.
  4. I have 3 complete sets of Tuna Toms carbon fiber drag washers and 4 clicker springs also complete clicker system rebuild kit for Diawa sealine sg's 27 or 47 size reels. Drags also fit the diawa accudepth plus series reels. All brand new and all for $25.00 bucks, Pick up in Mexico or buyer pays actual shipping. (which won't be much)
  5. I will take the better of the two units for $250.00 Sent you a pm.
  6. Not that I completely disagree with your philosophy however the site has moderators to make those kind of assessments. It was and is definitely a topic that effects us as sportsman no matter what your political affiliation. I myself appreciated the facts that were posted.
  7. Thats what I got out of the post as well.
  8. Sorry guys but I received a pm from nookchasen and it looks like the sale is done. If anything changes I'll pm you guys. Thanks for your interest.
  9. I know we got screwed. LOL. I checked out nookchasins post and it's accurate. Bad news is I'll take an $80.00 beating on the sale. Good news is they do a really nice job and you will be happy with it,
  10. I see what you mean. No offense taken. I appreciate the heads up. In fact I'm a little jealous as I got it from Cabelas a couple years ago and paid 169.00 + state tax and shipping. And that price was supposed to be "a deal" on a flyer that comes with their credit card bill every month. LOL. The knife is exactly as I described and I'll take $100.00 for it.
  11. Did you read post? First line says "looking to sell" but thanks for your advice. After Rickbgm mentioned the prices are down now I figure I'll go up into the Berkshires on a nice warm spring day after the water in the rivers recedes a bit, catch a few trout with it and hit a couple local fly shops and talk to the guys to see if I can get a lead or two. There are a lot of nice trout streams up in the area it was made.
  12. Tried there 6 or so years ago. All I got was pissed off by the PMed offers I got. Although some information about the rod was good posted by a couple of guys. Rod was put back into the closet and been in there since. Any other ideas?
  13. Thanks again. It's an 8 1/2 ft 4-5 weight. The markings are still there just on a different side of the rod. Looks like I'll hold on to it and take it out and catch a few trout with it this spring and see if the prices come back up in the next few years. I appreciate the time you took to respond.
  14. Thanks for your input. The rod is completely original including finish, windings, guides and handle. It was made in Amherst MA by the Amherst fishing rod company somewhere in the mid 40's. It's been fished but well taken care of. No warping ect. This is probably not an ebay sale or purchase for resale type deal and I'm looking for some type of media to reach serious buyers. Can you give me any leads as far as that would go?
  15. Like new condition. 4 sets of blades. Three salmon filleted with the 12" blades other 3 sets are brand new. Spare lithium battery included. 2 battery's. Charger and case. $150.00 firm Buyer pays actual shipping or pick up in Mexico.
  16. I have an antique bamboo fly rod made in the 40's from the Berkshires in MA I'm looking to sell. The rod is in very nice shape but I don't have a clue on where I would list it. Any collectors here or anybody able to give me any direction of where to list it? Thanks Glen
  17. Main line I like a couple hundred feet of 12 lb Ande underneath my fluorocarbon leaders. 20 lb test under the 12 depending on reel capacity. Cheap and easy to replace the 12 and leaders every year or as needed during the season.
  18. Forschner Cimeter for salmon. 10 or 12" blade for salmon and big lakers. I use the 12" for peeling the fillets off and going through bone and the 10" for skinning. Easy to sharpen and the edge lasts.
  19. I ran Magda 30's and 20's for years and while they were cheap reels they did the trick. Fished the Finger Lakes and then Ontario for a few years with them. Took many Salmon and Browns and never lost a fish because of them. Drags were a little sticky. This was 25+ years ago so I don't know if they are the same now. From my past experience I think they will be fine for the limited use it seems they would get. IF they are the same as they were back then.
  20. They are both productive but a slide diver has to be removed completely from the line or left on that rod. Same thing if you want to change color divers and then re rigged when you want to fish it again. A fixed diver can be removed from the rod via a snap swivel which is a hell of a lot more convenient. That said, I always have at least one rod on the boat dedicated to slide divers and four for running fixed divers.
  21. No way I would buy a boat without a sea trial and survey for a glass boat.
  22. Thats a really low price. I paid over $100.00 for my 150 at Costco.
  23. Something wrong there. I have a charter insurance policy with a million liability through Boat US/Geico and pay less than that.
