Selling fly gear?

Postby Todd » Mon Feb 06, 2017 4:03 pm

Anyone know the best method to sell used fly rods and reels? Is Ebay the best option? Thanks

From my experience there is no "best" option. eBay will work if you have experience and price gear properly. You can search for what you are trying to sell to see what the going price is. Don't just look at the buy-it-now prices. Also pick a few auctions and follow them till the items sells. That is the going price.

You can also try local fishing clubs. Some have ways for members to sell gear. There are also gear swaps and flea markets in some places. We have one big one in coastal VA each year.

If the gear is not too valuable you can donate it to a local club as well.

Craigs list is a world of bottom feeders and liars and hopefuls and crooks.

I just discovered another way if you have Facebook on your cell phone. At the top of the opening page are five icons with one that could look like a little house with a shaded roof. Click on that and it takes you to a page where you insert a photo/s from your stored photos. Then you write a description and state your price. You can also set the radius of facebook viewers that will be able to see your ad. I have an Okuma reel and two spare spools listed.
So far no takers, but there is no fee for this either.

Facebook has a Fly Fishing: Buy, Sell, Trade page that I have sold a few items on. Seems pretty good

Craigslist is also a good site for finding/selling used stuffs.
