Have you, or anyone you know, been contemplating a new rod, reel, waders, fly line, jacket, etc. or do you even just purchase some flies, lures, terminal tackle or tippet throughout the year? Why not do it on a discount!?!?
We do phone orders and these certificates along with any other merchandise can be mailed directly to your home, business or elsewhere! Shop hours are 9am to 5pm daily and our phone number is: (231) 745-3529 (Please call back or leave a message if we are unable to answer. With only one employee in the shop at a time now it can be difficult to always answer immediately.)
I don’t think I’ve run a trip yet since that last report where we didn’t at least tangle with a few or more Steelhead, but the landing ratio on those few trips I’ve done was not all that great as the fish were either too hot to handle or in tight places… (OK, there might have been a few learning and hookset issues as well, but mostly hot fish in tight places. ;^)
Below here is more about hunting than fishing, but I also have some used guide equipment listed for sale at the end and I have “linked” the harvested deer photos rather than post them directly here for those that don’t hunt or are squeamish about it…
I recently purchased some new Sage X rods and Spectrum/Spectrum Max reels to upgrade the equipment I guide with and provide you with the best in the business while out on the river with me. That being said, were I independently wealthy I would probably keep all my used stuff that has served me so well and I love so much, but I’m not so I have some used guide equipment to sell now…
These items will be first come first serve and I will either delete them from here or mark as sold once gone. Cash or check only as I am old school and do not have a cash app… You can contact me via text or voicemail (I do not currently answer unknown numbers right away, but do check voicemail) at two31 two33-four533.
First up, I have 2 outfits to be sold (Edit, 8:18pm, both of these outfits have now been sold, the TFO reels below are still available and more is yet to come.) as a complete outfit. Each outfit functions like new only both are well used. (I cannot count the fish they are responsible for!) They are 11’ 7wt Sage Z Axis Switch Rods w/Sage 3400D Reels w/backing and fly line as shown. (Tubes and socks for rods and original boxes for reels as well) Asking $700 on each outfit; total retail value of these new would have been $1300 – $1400 while in production.
Next up, I still have 2 TFO Atoll II Reels and one Atoll II Spool that are in excellent condition. All spools have backing and the spare has a running line as well. (Spare spool is currently set up for a lefty.) $200 each on the reels, $75 for the spare spool or $450 takes all if still available.
That’s about all I’ve got for you right now. l’ll be on the river guiding on Friday and Saturday as well as fun fishing tomorrow most likely (Unless it books!) so I should have more to report soon, but look to our/my social media page(s) for more frequent stuff in the meantime. Merry Christmas from me and the entire BBT Family!
Be well, stay safe and stay positive – Steve
