old fishing equipment

5 posts in this topic

i just ended up with a couple of bamboo fly rods, one in a brass tube and the other one in an aluminum tube with a canvas sheath. also ended up with a bamboo rod that could be a musky rod in the two piece set up or a walleye rod with the three piece set up. the guides on the musky are pretty cool and dont drop down, the opening is straight out the end of the pole. does anyone know how a guy could get an age and a value put to the poles? not selling, just wanted to get an idea what they are worth. thanks.

I don't know if you did yet or not, but try searching for something similar on ebay.

If you are near Lake Elmo, the fly shop there (boy, can't remember the name now for some reason, but a pretty famous and good one) will look at them and give you a appraisal. I brought one in, and basically it wasn't worth much. Bob told me that in all the years he has had people bringing them in, he only saw one that was truly a very valuable rod. But you never know smile.gif and even though most may not be that expensive "find" they are still nice rods in them selves and valauable to the owner. Bob Mitchells fly shop, but it might have changed names since then.

good luck,

If you look on eBay, use the advanced search feature and have it show you all those have closed that match your items. That way you can see how much they sold for, vs what somebody is asking.

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
