    Just gearing up for the trip and realizing that I don't have enough money to buy everything I want, as usual, so I'm selling one of my rods. Rod has been very lightly used, caught my first steelhead on it on the OP, but other than that it's lightly fished. Can't take it to Patagonia because it's a 3 piece rod and it won't fit in my backpack :)

    This is the rod I learned to Spey Cast on, and excellent winter steelhead and all around salmon rod. If you're looking for a cheap way to get into spey casting, this is it!

    Retail new: $250

    Asking price: $200 obo

    Yes I can attest I have fished this rod for 18 months now in the Gls for steelhead and salmon. Its a great rod for the price. My fly shop owner says this rod should be sold for $ 350 instead of $ 250 and it is only spey rod he carries for GLs steelhead and salmon fly fishing.

    Might be interested myself but saving for an 8/9 weight spey rod and new spey reel. LOL

    Man you guys drive a hard bargain, any takers for $175? This is a darn near brand new spey rod, perfect for salmon and winter steelhead (season is coming up), hardly been fished, for $75 off! I wouldn't sell this rod if I couldn't take it with me to Patagonia, but I need the cash for some other rods.

    Here's the kicker: first time I fished it, on the OP during February on my birthday, I caught my first steelhead on it. Know what that means? The rod has good karma ;)

    If you would have sold this last month I would be all over it in a second but now I am a little tight on my budget. I will check my budget in the morning and get back to you. I would love to have a 7/8 WT spey rod. Well I hope my budget will allow me to take this off of your hands, but I don’t know if I will be able to.
