I have two little fly rods for sale. My old knees won't allow me to fish the small creeks like I did when I was younger so I need to sell these little rods.
First is a one piece 5 foot rod built on a forecast RX6 graphite spinning rod blank with one foot guides and a small reverse half wells grip with a birds eye maple reelseat with silver rings. The rod weighs just 1.74 ounces and is new; never used. $50 plus shipping and fees if using paypal. or $62 shipped with pvc tube, fees included. I would rate the action as a 4/5 weight.
Second rod is a little 5'3" two piece "tadpole", which is a name I gave to the little black rods built on an SPG 501 fiberglass spinning rod blank. It has a black aluminum reelseat, black one foot guides and a small cigar grip with candy apple red wrappings and a red,white, and blue, accent wraps on the butt section. weighs 2.56 ounces. Shipped in a pvc tube. $50 plus shipping and fees if using paypal.or $62 shipping and paypal fees paid. I would rate the action as a 3/4 weight but a larger line would load well in tight situations. I'll make some pics if someone is seriously interested. I have probably 100 or more fly rods and will sell any of them so if you need a good used rod; fiberglass, graphite, and bamboo.
By the way, either of these rods can be used as spinning rods using the little underspin reels by zebco or shakespeare. I carry the spin reel in my pack and can quickly convert to spin fishing as the need arises.

These deals are steals folks. If I didn't already have a few, I'd be all over this.
