So to answer the question.....Check with your local fly club.
I know that with our club some of the senior members pass away every year and their survivors don't know what to do with their gear.
Club officers are often aware of what's available and might be willing to help someone truly in need..

Saturday, I tried to give away a couple of rods to someone in our club who runs classes for kids....They didn't want 'em, they didn't need 'em. Already got plenty.
I'd love to be wrong!

Me too. It's a shame but his previous posts don't match up to what he is saying now but maybe he was previously posting out of wishful thinking and trying to be a part of the group. I don't know.

Maybe....if I am wrong, I sure hope nothing bad happened to his wife seeing as he is now a single father

There is a lot of charity in this group but there have been some bad things happen before. People here don't really know you except by what you post. when you request doesn't match up with what we have learned about you it makes people suspicious.

Unfortunately it appears you aren't unless January was a very tough month. He was shopping for a fly tying kit on this forum last month.

Life can be tough sometimes! I don't know what the truth here really is and don't really care. The bottom line when times are tough and your raising children the important thing is that they get fed and have medical and a roof over their heads ! And as much as I love fly fishing that has to take a back seat to the welfare of family! Priorities !

Unless he is fishing to feed his family. If that's the case buy a walmart rod and reel. Prob get a setup for less than $50. Still will catch you food.

Charity is not about providing you leisure time entertainment. Go find a garage sale if you want something inexpensive.

By the way its nice of you trying to help your local club.
