Thinning the Herd Part III - 5wt Helios Outfit
 
I have a brand new, never fished, Orvis Helios in 5WT, 9 Ft., Mid-Flex. It comes with sock and carbon fiber tube. I am selling it as an outfit with an Orvis Battenkill Mid Arbor III reel. The reel is gold in color (hey, it matches) and comes with two spools. The reel has been fished 3 or 4 times and is in near-mint condition. I need $600 shipped and insured for the entire package. Oh, by the way, one spool has backing and weight forward 5 wt. floating line and the other spool has backing and 5 wt. sinking line. I'm sorry I don't recall more about the sinking line.

How tempting is it if I lower the price by $25.00?

It's looking good but I'll have to defer. Have to pay my daughter's tuition this month which takes a bite out of play money.

Been there done that:
Wife: "Did you have this many fly rods and guns when we got married?"

Me: "Hey, I have an idea, let's go clothes shopping together!"

Ok, I'm heading to work. If it's still here when I get back I'll buy it. Will just have to get to the mail before the wife. vr
