This tends to happen to a couple people a year on this forum it seems....

If I had some old gear or gear I didn't use a lot, that's what I would do. Pay it forward.

That's a great idea IMO.

I like to give away my old gear. I think of it as planting seeds, and I have seen some seeds grow into fisherman out fishing me.

all of the tackle i have is not antique - its pretty modern or at least was new withing the past 8-10 years. so this is not junk. and would be totally servicable if i were to get back into spin/cast fishing.
i never spent big $$$ on tackel until i got into fly fishing and even that caused heartburn since i was not used to it. well, i spent a lot of $$ just not buying high end rods/reels. never saw the point.

the rods that i have are all berkley. i used to really like those. decent price and performed very well for me. the rods i own are call Berkley Canadian Specialist Series rods. i must have a dozen in all sizes from 5ft UL up to 7 1/2ft MH in spinning and a few in casting. they are nice rods and IM7 graphite with nice cork handles. they were all new from 2000 - 2003. they were used a lot back then, but have not been used since 2003. they have been properly stored and maintained. they were approx $75 each new.

the reels i used to use were shimano tx series. not the most expensive or featured, but the always did well for me. i tx 500, 1000, 2000, 3000 models and some extra sppols and they are paired nicely for each of the rods above. these reels i think were approx $30 new.

i have lots of lures/crankbaits, mainly for walleye and bass. a ton of platics - mainly curl tail grubs, a huge amount of jig heads, lots of harnesses and bottom rigs, etc. i even have a few plano tackle boxes and large rod tubes.

i used to be a hard core walleye fisherman on lake erie and in canada and used to fish a lot of tournaments. which is what amounts to me having a lot of walleye tackle.

maybe over the next few weekends between painting the house, thanksgiving, watching football and being swamped at work, i can take some photos and make a more detailed list and post up and see what the interest level is.

some of it i want to see. some i would love to donate to a cause as mentioned. and i would like to hang on to at least 2 spinning rods/reels since ya never know when that might come in handy. i love the fly rod, but at times a spinning rod would make so much more sense.
