Tsavo303 posted a topic in Fly Fishing BST ForumHowdy, I inherited a couple nice fly Orvis Helios 2 rods I don’t have a use for. rod 1 is a 9 foot 9 weight, 3 3/4 oz, tip flex. comes with sleeve and tube. $470 shipped insured. Pretty much new a couple faint marks on the cork. No real defects. Carbon fiber reel seat with butt rod 2 is a 8 foot 6 5 weight, 2 1/4 oz, tip flex come with sleeve and tube. (Cap on tube is from different model, he put the wrong cap on) I can’t find any defects, I don’t think it was used. $550 shipped insured Buy both for $900 shipped. I didn’t get reels(too bad) buyer can choose shipping method ground or USPS priority with signature and insurance included or overnight for $20 more. PayPal, or whatever payment is good. I’m in leesburg Va. will deliver within 50 miles. I’ll consider offers and other trades but don’t need much . Feel free to ask. i would do partial trade for two piece inshore spinning rod ($150 or less) or maybe knives or gun stuff. I’m the same name on gunbroker and snipershide with 250+ good or better transactions and no negatives. I’m tk0tactical on EBay with 100% positive on 572 transactions.
snakesurf posted a topic in Fly FishingThis is a Fly Rod I recently finished that I made for my Christmas present. I have a BVK that I had done in a 5 wt but it felt a little too stiff and more like a 6 wt so I made this Mangrove that is not quite as stiff as the BVK. The set up is a REC reel seat with a natural cork half Wells grip. The thread is a variegated yellow orange Fish Hawk with Gudebrod metallic gold accents. The guides are Fuji KW 12mm Ti frame, a 8mm BLAG and 10 6mm BLAG running guides. The tip is an Alconite black SS frame with a 6mm ring. It cast a WF 5 F trout line pretty good that is just a regular cold water line and not a half size larger. The thread was a good match but after I got it finished it looked a little like band aids. Oh well it cast good.
