Yesterday I went to visit Ivan, he is now in a very bad way and unfortunately he will no longer be able to fish at all. The Parkinsons is really getting a grip and his eyesight is now affected and he is unable to drive.

Ivan has asked me to handle the sale of all of his fishing kit, quite an emotional issue as we sat together and catalogued it all over a cuppa.

As you know he tended to invest quite wisely so I have some very good quality stuff (some of it virtually brand new) and I'd like to try to get a very good price for it if possible.

Amongst the premium items I have:

2 Sage one rods a 9'6" 6 weight and a 10' 5 weight - these are pretty much un-used and retail at £800 each.
I have an Airflo Inflation Waistcoat again virtually new (size - would fit me over my jacket) this is an £180 item
4 Greys GTS500 reels with 6 spare spools all with lines on them.
A nice airflow tackle bag similar style to mine but about 50% bigger.
There is a brand new John Norris WF7 Floating Line
If you know anyone that wants a river fishing outfit let me know - I have a 3 weight rod, Okuma Reel with 3 weight line, Bob Church folding Pan Net, flies and a priest.

These are the easy saleable bits, of course there is a shed load of other sundries including flies/fly boxes/leader material etc.

Let me know if you are interested - looking at the quality of the stuff I think we could probably raise £1000 for the lad and that wouldn't be robbing anyone. I personally have chucked £50 in for some bits and bobs as a starter, can we ask around to see if we can shift this stuff and help a fellow member out.

Thanks, Andre.

There is also a John Norris 10' 7 weight rod that Ivan has asked me to 'give' to Dave Carrie and I will sort this when I see you next Dave.

Thanks Steve, at the moment I have a bid in for the pair, I'll be taking them to Toft for viewing, I have receipts and registration documents for both which covers them against breakage etc.
