    OK, it has been decided- the rod and lines are for sale:

    • Deer Creek Switch 11' 8wt. Used twice
    -includes sock and tube (no card).

    Retail price $349; Asking price $250.
    ---------------------------------
    •Skagit setup: Used one time
    -Rio shooting line, 100 ft .030 in dia, retails for $34.95
    -Airflo Compact Skagit head, ***600 grains retails for $48.95
    -2 Rio sink tips: type 3 and 6, 15 ft, 109 grains retail for $21.95 each

    Total retail price: $127.80; Asking price: $100.00

    ***The guys at All About the Fly helped with the line setups for this. The Skagit head rated for 600 grains did not weigh as advertised so a 660 grain head was cut back, giving the line a true weight of 600 grains to really load the rod.
    ---------------------------------
    •Scandi setup: Used one time
    -Guideline Shortcut DC PT-10/11 floating head, retails for $74.98
    -Guideline level running line 30 meters .027 dia, retails for $44.98

    Total retail price: $119.96; Asking price: $100.00

    Total package for $450, firm. That's a heck of a good deal.

    Prices do not include shipping.

    Crap. I can see it's time to start referring to myself in the 3rd person again:

    Someone needs this setup to save the Itchy Dog from hisself. If a new home is not
    found for it soon, Itchy fears that it will remain in his quiver, which would require the purchase of a new reel and spool, which he would like to avoid if at all possible.

    Tell Itchy he outta hold onto it. It is a sweet stick (as I am sure he knows). If I hadn't just bought a Z, I'd be all over this.

    Curious as to why Itchy is selling...?

    It's a simple matter that Itchy developed a case of "rod envy" and wanted something longer. Growing up a small, malnourished Itchy Pup, this is something he has struggled with his entire life.
