Photojoe from FAOL hooked me up with a sweet deal. He bought 100 bamboo flyrods and divided the costs up amongst a bunch of guys. I ended up with 15 rods, including a rebuilt banty that will be fun for panfish, about 8 "production" rods (south ben 359, HI lucky strike, some montagues, etc.) and 6 misc rods that look pretty good to me. Some really great stuff, none of which need a ton of work. Some are missing guides or tip tops, and one has a cracked reel seat but the cane looks good on all the rods. Thanks Joe!

Sweet deal John! I was going to get in on that deal but spent my money on a restored Granger Victory.

that is a nice rod stew. i figured i couldn't go wrong here, the per rod price was low, and there are some real gems in there. will have to do a little work, but overall they are in great shape.

7 wt carp rod and anniversary (5th) spending kept me away... looks like quite a great deal though, and I'm really glad you got in on it.
