Today felt spring like. Warmish (ok 40 degrees) windy with bright sunshine the ice on the ponds is getting dark indication that the warm water below is working on it. It got me thinking about the coming season. So I registered the Lund Alaskan and the Sequoia and began to work on my fly rod order from Orvis for the coming season.
As an endorsed guide I am encouraged to have the latest and greatest for my clients to use. Last year saw an upgrade of my freshwater gear to Recon and Helios rods. This year the saltwater gear is due for an upgrade. I use 9-foot 9 weight rods on the salt not because the heavy gear is needed on big fish rather I like to use big flies and the wind blows every afternoon and the only way to pitch them is with pretty heavy gear.
So as part of my upgrade I have the old gear for sale. have 2 9-foot Orvis TLS Rods (2 piece) with Clearwater reels, backing. One with clear intermediate sinking line and one with floating line. $150 per rod/ reel combo with case.
I also have freshwater outfits to sell they are 9-foot 6 weight 2 piece Orvis Access rods with Access reels (right hand retrieve), floating and sinking lines on separate spools. $300 each with case.
So if you are looking good used fly fishing outfits. Drop me a note or give me a call.
