Default it did not woork out

My best friend tried flyfishing for the first time at age 65 to spend some time with me in some neat places. The very first time I took him was the first time he ever caught a fish. unfortunately he did not take to it. here is his email to me asking if I could help sell his gear. I will only list 5 items per the rules but once that clears I will post the other couple things. Price will be 20% lower than the retail prices listed and includes UPS ground shipping in the US
I have come to the sad conclusion that fly-fishing and my leg/back problems don ‘t really get along so I am selling all of my fly fishing equipment. Most of this equipment is very close to new condition as much of it has been used only once – or in a couple of cases never used.

The following items are available:


Simms Rivershed Boots– Vibram size 13 worn once. Cost new $179.95. NOW PRICED AT 100.00 shipped in US
Click the image to open in full size.

Simms Guide Convertible, Sterling XL, worn once. Cost new $379.95. NOW PRICED AT 250.00 shipped in US

Click the image to open in full size.



Sorry he decided not to pursue it.

Dave

Dave,
I think it may be the "80% of retail" that some folks might seeing as 80% OFF retail...
If I could make a suggestion, do the 20% off calculation for the potential buyers and re-post with the actual price your friend is looking to get.

Sorry you lost a potential fly-fishing buddy.

All the Best,
TB 09
