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.

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.
