    It's nuts what some people throw.

    Crazy,I'd much rather flog them on for next to nothing,I sold all my beach tackle many years ago,job lot,now this wasn't rubbish gear,three abu multipliers,a 6000,6500ca and 7000,three decent beachcasters,plus loads of end gear,the guy came up from South London with his dad and asked me why I was selling it,as I was obviously keen,I replied I'd rather someone got the pleasure of using it,rather than sit in the garage in the corner,I think I got £150 quid ,the leads and hooks were nearly worth that,I was happy though,it more than paid for a new Shimano reel...

    Nice haul. Want a wanton waste that would have been.

    When a neighbour died and the widow wanted to dispose of his gear I phoned the Angling Trust and a rep came and took it for one of those schemes that gets troubled kids into fishing to set them on a better track..hopefully.

    That's a good idea and I'll probably do that with my old stuff as I upgrade. I'll have to post pics of the rods up as, to be honest I don't really have much idea about what's decent or not.

    The tip's loss is your gain! Well done. you have a lot of gear there which you can use, appreciate and in due course when you gain experience, perhaps improve on.

    Our local club (Warminster) collects old kit and sets up young kids with it. A great idea I reckon...

    Also got a Shakespeare 11ft quiver and pole.
