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.

        My buddy and his dad dropped there front end of there pickup in on lake bemidji Saturday luckley they were able to get out with out harm. After all the rain and warm temps hopefully people learn now to stop driving. If you do go out walk not worth the risk. I'm looking at the forcast and after tonight the lows for nights are in the teens so hopefully things may heal up and I can get out a few more times. It's the middle of February I'm not going to be putting things away yet feels like I just got things out!

      We had to ride snowmobiles 30 miles out of the Canadian bush Monday and it was a mess. Filled our Otters with water even with covers strapped on.

      From what I am seeing on the Arnesen webcam, there is not much snow left.  Sleds would need scratchers.  Wheelers maybe a better option until we get more snow and there is none in the forecast.

      Coming up Thursday morning and planning on making the run to the reefs/islands via snowmobile.  Is there any loose snow left on the trail to keep the sleds cool, or would a 4 wheeler be necessary?  Any information from locals there would be very much appreciated.  Thx.
