    Default A strange question to ask

    I am a single father trying to raise 3 young children on my own and was intoduced to fly fishing last summer and am hooked.Due to the financial restaints of raising 3 kids on my own modest income,buying a fly rod and reel for salmon fishing is very difficult.Does anyone no of any non profit organizations were one may get one cheap or free.I am not looking for a Sage or Hardy.Just something in a 7 or 8 weight to get on the river.Thank you.

    I'm not saying your trying to pull a fast one, but are you trying to pull a fast one?

    What happened to the rod your boss bought you or the cheap set up before that??? Are you pulling a fast one on us? Hmmmm

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    I wonder if the name "newtyer" rings a bell?

    First thing I did when I saw this was to go back and read all of the previous posts. I was sad to see that there seems to be a total lack of consistency here and in the words of Han Solo, "I have a bad feeling about this."

    I can think of a few times here on these pages where I was the one that jumped all over somebody's **** for something like this and it turned out that I was greatly mistaken.

    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.
