Hello my name is Eric Porter, and I have a pair of new Scot Rods, and a pair of Ross Reels that I need to sell. I purchased these new when working at Brooks Lodge in Alaska in 2002. At that time I was in college and still a bachlor so I had plenty of time on my hands, and I envisioned really getting into fly fishing. Now, I am a married with a demanding job and I just don't think I am going to have the time to go fly fishing. Below is what I have.

1) Scott POW'R PLY Rod, Model #G803, 3 Wt, 1.9 oz., 8', 3-piece. The serial number on this rod is 192052. It also comes with the orginal hard tube case. I used this rod three times, but it is in absolutely pristine condition. You wouldn't know it was ever used, if I didn't tell you. I paid $420 for this rod in 2002, but will sell for $300 plus shipping.

2) Ross Model 1 Gunnison reel w/ extra spool. This reel was used with the above rod three times as well, but it is also in perfect condition. I paid $250 for this reel w/ the extra spool, and I am asking for $175 plus shipping.

3) I also have another larger Scott Fly rod. It is a High Performance, 9 Wt, 4.5 oz., model # HP889, it is 8' 8", 3-piece. The serial number for this rod is 191433. It also included the orginal hard case. This rod is brand new, I have never used it. I paid $650 for it in 2002, and I am asking $475 plus shipping for it.

4) Finally, I have another Ross Reel. It is a Canyon Big Game line, Model 5. It is brand new, and also includes an extra spool. It is engraved with "Brooks Lodge 2002". I paid $600 for this reel setup, but I will let it go for $450.

I have pictures of each item if interested.

Ok guys, all the views and no replys screams at me that I have the prices set too high on these rods and reels. I really need to sell these quickly, so I am opening the floor to any reasonable offer. In addition, I will cover the shipping to the lower 48 states.

Thanks,
Eric

The prices seem reasonable. My guess is that everyone is trying to pay Christmas bills. I know I am.

The prices are a little high IMHO. You should look for completed auctions on eBay for these items to get an idea what people will pay.

If I had a few hundred extra dollars lying around I'd be interested, but unfortunately, I don't! :)

All,
I have also sold the Canyon Big Game reel. Therefore, I only have the High Performance Scott rod, and the Ross Gunnison reel still available for sale. Want to make me an offer?

Everthing has been sold except the new Scott High Performance rod which I will let go for $350, and I will cover the shipping. Just send me an email to ebportman@hotmail.com.
