    Default All this was going to the tip!

    I happened to take me quiver rest to work with me as wanted to make a bank stick for it.
    A colleague clocked it and said he's got a load of tackle in the back of his car that he's was taking to the tip after work! He said I could take what I wanted, so I just too the lot!
    It's obviously not the latest stuff but a newbie like me is very thankful!

    Nice haul, however did your colleague not think of donating the gear to a local charity? Almost seems criminal to dump it at a tip.

    No he mustn't of done. He seemed to think I'd probably throw most of it my self, but everything seems to be in perfect order.

    Well worth having. The tubes will always come in handy. if the reels feel ok then give them a clean and a lubrication then respool with sensor( a bulk spool is cheap) and give them a try

    There's four rods in those tubes.
    Theres an Abu match rod, a Shakespeare quiver tip rod, there's a carp rod that I can't remember the name of and a never used telescopic sprinner rod as well.

    It all looks well kept and would be great for a charity,kids maybe,but certainly too good for the tip.

    Twice I have passed a bloke throwing stuff on a skip and stopped and asked if I can have them, two brand new boat rods and a box of expensive unused 15 lures came my way.
