A really nifty Paul H. Young 8'6" 2/2 15F 4-1/4oz non-parabolic 7wt made circa 1947. Probably a Standby model. This rod is a casting machine!

Art for Conservation is a social enterprise offering limited edition fine art prints as a way to help fund conservation efforts working to protect the places we love to fish. Each edition will have a specific non-profit conservation organization that will receive a percentage of the retail price to help further their mission. The organization will be working to protect the resource that is the subject of the artwork, so when you view your print on your wall, you know your purchase has helped protect that specific place. The rivers, streams, creeks, lakes, estuaries, bays and oceans that draw us to them in the pursuit of fish are under constant threat. Make the art you place in your home work to protect our resources.

The Classic Fly Rod & Reel List was created by a group of friends as a way to buy, sell and trade classic fly tackle. We aren't dealers - though we do buy, sell, and consign with dealers from time to time. They're great people, and they have all kinds of interesting rods and reels pass through their hands. They fill an important role in the classic tackle and fly fishing community. But that isn't the idea here. This is just a simple list of classic fly rods, reels and miscellaneous items that we have to offer and a list of things we'd like to acquire. It's a hobby. We try to place a fair value on the items we have, and we really like trades where both parties get something new to enjoy. The whole thing operates from my fly tying desk in the summer kitchen of an old farmhouse in Union County, Pennsylvania.
How it Works
Take a look at The List sections below. If you see a neat old rod, reel or other piece of kit that you'd like to have, use the form at the bottom of each page to shoot us an email and we'll start a conversation. Same goes if you have an item on The Want List. Use the form and we'll go from there. You'll be talking to the owner of each specific item, and work out the details of the deal directly with them. These are private transactions between two individuals.
The Basic Rules
Even though each transaction is a private affair between two fishermen, everyone associated with The List has agreed to a few basic standards for offering tackle on this site. Understandings with regard to payment, shipping, and inspection periods are outlined below.
At the end of the day, we're all just fly fishermen who love old tackle. We'll do our best to make any purchase, sale or trade with us satisfactory to both parties involved. Sincerely - Ryan, Scott and the Gang
