Custom Made 9" 3/4wht (New Condition)

fly rodThis is a custom rod I had built by Charles A. Roberts of Colorado Springs Colorado. I never used it, don't know why for sure, I have had many chances to take it out but it remained in the sheath and 1/1/2 plastic 6' pvc container that it was shipped to me in and remained since 2005. On the handle where the reel mounts is an inscription "9 3/4 2-05 The Bounty Hunter" this will not show when a reel is attached! The blank was a St Croix I do not know what model, and I will ship it in the same container that I received it in, I am feeling in this day and age $30.00 for shipping should cover it. I will take any pictures of the rod that you might ask for, remember this is built by Chuck Roberts known for the reverse wrap, and I think it was going to be one of the last rods he planned on building because of age. I am a retired Charter Boat captain the boat was named the Bounty Hunter, and also a fly fishing guide in Erie Pa. I would like to see the rod go to someone who might dare to be different, it has never even had a reel attached to it, $169.00 paid way more then this, will ship I have posted a link to my web site for pictures of this rod, Thanks for looking link for pictures http://my.opera.com/joeroot/albums
