what do you think of this craigslist ad

I am new to fly fishing, and I want to get a decent rod/reel and I came across this craigslist ad that seems too good to be true - take a look.

Fly Fishing Rod w/Reel

It's out of the way a little, but I think it would be worth it if its in good condition.

that's got to be stolen. Abel Super 8 is practically $800 alone.

if it sounds too good to be true it probly is. If it was anyone who knew anything about fly fishing, they would have stated the length, line wt, etc.

I agree totally, that rig is HOT! Like Dr. Gonzo said, the reel alone is $800 new, why would he be selling the whole setup for $150.

If it's #3 on Cliff's list, pick it up while dad's at work . Seriously, if he's
giving a street address, take a look.

Yup I would check it out in person,,,,, I've gotten some sweet deals of the rich kids in the past---> they usually have very nice stuff thats bought by the parents on credit because rich folks usually never deal in cash at all so the kids don't get much spending money until they sell something Mommy bought.
