    I don't know Keith (Methow) or Kim. I do know tough times. You may have read they lost their home and possessions in the wildfire. They also lost their pets. This sale is to benefit them. Working out payment preferences so they get the most and easiest for their needs.

    Simms backpack and front/sling attachment. I've packed it to see how things fit but never used it. $150
    Redington Classic Trout 9044 (9' 4wt 4pc). Gently used in sock and tube. $100
    Redington Classic Trout 8634 (8'6" 3wt 4pc). Unused in plastic, sock and tube. $100 Steve Call

    I was planning on selling these for myself. This cause is much more important. No trades or haggling. You may find these things at bit cheaper elsewhere online, but buying there will not help one of our members.

    I will ship at your expense or find a face to face option. Most important will be to get needed funds to Methow in the manner most convenient for him and Kim.

    Thanks! Ed image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

    Ed, I'll take the 3wt. Don't really need it, but it's for a good cause.

    PM me with how to best pay and see if we can hook up in the near future.

    The shop will gladly donate as well, good cause, shame that things like this happen to good folks.

    Here's a Fishpond Westwater Guide Lumbar Pack, brand new, retail $140, let's get this out the door for $100 to get it moving and money in their pockets. I guess make the check out to Ed Call and send to him, or do a face-to-face here at the shop.

    Good cause here, thanks Ed for getting this rolling, don't know the family but I'm certain that this will be appreciated, as little as it may be in the face of such a tragedy.

    Kelvin, there is a direct donation site. This sale thread can grow as needed. Any other ideas you have would be good.

    I have a 5wt. 4pc. Allen "myth" series rod I'll put in the mix. This was a client rod for a year and has been on the water maybe 15 times at best. The cork shows a fair amount of wear but the rod is in great shape. I've got a lot going today but I'll put up some pics tomorrow. Comes with original sock & tube. $100
    Arrange payment through Ed (hope this is ok Ed?) and when he tells me it's good I'll ship it to you for free.

    I enjoy building rod and have a few blanks that I could build up. So I will donate one rod to the cause. The price will be $150 shipped all proceeds to the cause. You can have what ever you like on the label. A few blanks that I could build are -
    - Pac Bay rainforest II - 9' 5wt 3pc nice blank will come with single foot guides. I have built a few of these and they are nice.
    - Cabela's pt+ 8'6" 4pc 4wt. This is a nice medium action rod and built in the US buy St. Criox ( I actually have one build up with great components)
    - Cascade 9' 6wt -either 3 or 4pc ?, These are us blanks and the company is no longer in business. Feels like a nice medium action rod.
    - Lamiglas - 9' 2pc 5wt - looks like a really nice blank

    I may have a tube for some, but will come with a sock for sure. You will need to give me 2 or 3 weeks to complete

    You can search the rod building forum for some pictures of a few rods I built. Please pm me for info or if you would like to proceed.

    I will be on the road most of this week for work. I will do my best to keep on top of this thread. I am trying to get Methow's Paypal info so the gift donations can go straight to him. Seems the fastest way to help him.

    Who's up for buying some cool stuff to help one of our own?

    I spoke with Keith this morning. He is overwhelmed and so grateful for all the support he has received and by kindness shown by so many. I'm happy to report that our conversation was cut short as he had to go move stuff out of the rain!!! Let's hope we get enough to help extinguish or slow the fires!

    Anyway, Keith doesn't have a PayPal account. With the situation up there at the moment, I'm not sure how easy it would be for him to set one up. Today, he's going down to the Post Office to see about a PO Box so he has some place to receive mail. If/when he gets that set up, those who don't want to use the GoFundMe site could send a check.
