For sale or trade for an 8wt reel:

South Bend model 24 - 9' 3/2 8wt. Bass taper. Beautiful reconditioned rod. Has a repair to middle section that was done by Mark Craig. Alumimum screw top case and SB sock. Fished it once for about 10 minutes since I got it. $125.00

Custom 7' 2pc 4wt on deep blue rainshadow blank built by Mike Popick. Incredible Birch Bark grip. Winston style nickel silver reel seat. Nice med. fast action. I just have too many blueline rods and this one doesn't see any action. PVC case and sock. Lawn cast only. $175.00

Prices do not include shipping.

I would also trade for a nice 8wt reel +/- cash as necessary. I'm heading to Destin for vacation next month (Oct) and want a new 8wt reel to go with my new St.Croix Legend Ultra 8wt that I got to replace my recently broken custom. I'm looking for a decent, but not break the bank, reel for this rod. Must be large arbor and saltwater safe as I will use it for freshwater Bass fishing as well as inshore saltwater for Reds, trout, etc. I'd love to workout a trade for either of the two rods I have left above. I'm not interested in Bass Pro, Cabelas, etc. branded reels. I currently have a Dan Bailey, and it's junk. I want something nicer - Maybe a Lamson, Ross, Orvis, etc. Used but well taken care of is preferred.

PM me with any interests...
