Re: A good searchtool to look for fishing gear on Craigslist
Good ways to find bargains on tackle are always welcome but I would caution people that craigs list is a notorious place for all sort of scammers. This is not to say, 'don't do it' but rather to take every precaution that you can to protect yourself from a bad experience.
When contacting persons selling fly tackle ask questions with the intent of finding out whether the seller is familiar at all with the items for sale. If the seller can speak fluently about tackle then the items may actually be their own and the reason for sale should be disclosed. If the seller doesn't have a clue about the rod or reel etc, then you must have some doubts of the origin of the items being offered.
Lastly you must be sure that the item is going to be delivered when you pay. This may be the most difficult aspect of an internet based sale conducted with an unknown entity.
Good luck and be careful,
