this is my first post in the classifieds section
I've certainly been looking, sometimes even dreaming a little

so, here's the scenario :

my dear buddy got me into long range fishing around 2015 with my first trip on the Shogun for 5 days. I was hooked!
we went on 2 more across the next 3 years, missing one year / trip for work. we hit Guadalupe on the Shogun in early December of 2017 and had an outstanding trip.
made a plan to go back in 2019 and then life happened.
Alberto got Brain Cancer
he'll not fish again
when our trip came up (and my fingers were crossed he might be able to make it) his wife let me know that Al was out.
I decided to go ahead and go on my own and now I'm just like the rest of you, totally and completely addicted

so, I have kept a bit of his gear for myself as his wife said he'd want that. it's helped me get started and I've added where and when I could

now I am selling the rest of his cache to help raise money for his medical expenses.
I took most of the higher quality reels by Island Tackle to have Sam help me with appraising the value for most of them. the rest I have studied similar posts on here
if you feel like making an offer, I'm open to it, but if you wouldn't accept it yourself, don't make it here.
this guy's medical costs are crazy and this is my way of helping out.
helping the guy that helped me get in

additionally, I live in West LA
not the most convenient location for most of you
I am willing to meet part way, freeway convenient and am open to shipping on buyer's dime for the reels and parts.
would prefer to do rods hand to hand.

I would prefer to do Cash or Venmo, I am open to PayPal if you do the Friends / Family route

for now I am starting with a list of everything
I have photos, clean ones (it's what I do for a living and you've likely seen em if you happen to read Field & Stream, Outdoor Life, Outside, Audubon, Travel & Leisure and you get the idea) that I will post after I get this up. likely 1-2 per time with more available upon request

the gear is / was well taken care of, he was very meticulous about that

am happy to have a conversation, combine items, etc.

note: I will be heading down to San Clemente Wednesday for a lunch meeting (with the Bight's Photo Director & Creative Directors) and can meet in the area after if there's interest
thanks for making it this far
cheers

    Send you a PM.

    I would do all your communication via PM with potential buyers.
