Ok, I hate garage sales. But I was driving through Kansas City, saw one, and my dad wanted to stop and look around. So I looked around becuase of the what the hell factor. I noticed a fly rod across the driveway and I went to look at it, Its a Winston IM6, with a twenty five dollar price tag!
I spent a few minutes looking at the rod, It was in perfect condition, the cork was still clean.
When I payed for it, the lady who's sale it was says "Oh, I have a tube and a warrenty card for that"
I am probably the luckiest guy in the world, but because of my nature, I am skeptical of everything, I quickly drove home put a line on it and cast it.
I knew it was One hundred% legit, it had that beautiful Winston action.
Just to be sure, I went to the fly shop, and they confirmed it was a factory built Winston.
I thought Id share my story
