Nah, not being a Debbie Downer...Just an honest assessment of what I have experienced the last 8 or so years. I always try to keep it real in my posts.Wow Savvy, congratulations, three Debbie-Downer posts on one thread, a possible world record!
Multiple paragraphs of rod descriptions, all appropriate for deeper fishing. Yet no deeper-fishing desire on your part. I see a big sell-off on the way. . .
Guys, get ready for action!
Regarding "the sell-off" I'd say you were partially accurate. I do have a desire to sell about 30-40% of my rods & reels and that is mostly because I haven't used a good portion of them. It's a shame that such nice equipment is sitting around unused. Like I said, I've curtailed my fishing excursions the last 2 years pretty significantly. Especially, mid-summer fluke trips when it's 95 degrees out with 100% humidity. On those days I'd rather have my spleen removed than cook in the sun running 25 miles to catch 1 or 2 fluke.
Right now my only issue is finding buyers that understand that quality tackle doesn't come at off-the-rack Tsunami prices. And I'm not going to give away $250 reels for $40. The Abu's you built me are mine for good, whether I fish them or not, I'm keeping all of them. But the other reels in the arsenal are all in absolutely beautiful condition and I won't part with them unless I garner a fair price.
It all remains to be seen.
