Used Rods and Reels For Sale

Ocasionally, I find some nice used rods and examples of traditional tackle that may be of interest.  These are used items and there is often some evidence of wear and tear that I try to document, however, if you are not satisfied, you may return the item, unfished, for a refund.  




Used "Klassic Glass" Small Stream E-glass 7'6" 3 piece #4/5 Line       Sold

This is a used "Klassic" small stream rod offering.   I have tuned the rod to proper length and ferrule fit.  All three pieces are different lengths; the color is mellon orange, and the grip is a cigar.  It comes with a bag and a 2" ABS tube.  Wraps are chestnut silk with beige trim.  I built this rod as a demo, so it has been handled and lawn-cast.  Because I was in a hurry to meet a deadline, I cracked the reel seat spacer when I bored it.  The seat is well-glued so it will not fail, but there are high points that will wear as the seat is used-hence the low price.  Although the rod is marked for a #4 line, it is more of a #5 in my hand.

Graphite Trout Rod: 8'6" #5 line; glossy black intermediate modulus custom build.      $195+Shipping

I built this rod as a demo and it has only been lawn-cast a few times.   This is a 2 piece rod with custom appointments such as a black aluminum and ebony reel seat, a slim reverse-wells grip, black wraps with chrome metalic thread tipping, and a black hardloy high-riding stripper.  The label says it is a 4 weight, but in my hand it is a #5.  The rod comes with a black custom rod bag. 


Pacific Bay IM7 Rainforest II Graphite 9'0" 4 wt. 2 pc.                       $195+Shipping

I built this rod for a fishing trip and used it once.  It is in perfect condition, although the label is yellowed from the spar varnished used in wrapping.  The stripper is an upgraded nickle silver/green agate. A great nymphing rod, or a terrific caster, this rod is highly versatile.  I am only parting with it because it has not gotten much use lately.  Rod comes with a custom green flannel bag.
