Hey Walt. I haven't bought anything from him but I did trade some emails with him a while back about one of the reels he's selling. I offered him what they've been going for on eBay and he declined. I think his prices are generally a little bit higher than what the items go for on eBay and I think eBay is a pretty good barometer for fly gear values.
He was certainly nice enough in his emails. He seems like a good guy.
Thanks Dav I was thinking about selling or trading him a rod that I don't use. I would rather sell it my self but just haven't found any one interested in it. its a high end rod and is new. I've never fished it. So I'm not really interested in just giving it away for a whole lot less then its worth. I'll sell it very reasonable but not for a give away price. I though I would check with some here about that place before I email him. thanks again.
No prob Walt. If you do end up trading with him I'd be interested to hear if you think he gave you a fair price (no $ amounts, just whether you think it was fair or not) for your rod. I was thinking of a trade myself for the reel I was interested in but I never pursued it cuz I figured I wouldn't get much for the rod.
thanks Dav's I just emailed him to see if he is interested. After looking at his list I didn't see anything I was really interested in for myself. So I would only be interested in selling it to him. I'll let everybody know if it works out. Its all ways good to find sites other then ebay. But I still my end up using them.
