Good point. I am dedicated to building all my rods these days, but I still look for reels and other gear online. I would certainly ask a lot of questions of an online auction/craigslist seller before buying. You see so many listings that are simply wrong that is a huge red flag that the seller obviously knows nothing about what they have. I just wish there was recourse.
I bet you that no one in Twin Bridges ever locks there doors. Unfortunately it sounds like the fly shops will need expensive security systems now.
