I work as a teacher.
I work at a little hippy school in VT. We have a nice river with bass and trout within walking distance from my classroom.
Being a hippy school with all sorts of radical and weird notions about learning, it affords students and teachers 2.5 hours of 'elective' time each week. I get to elect what class I teach on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.
Not sure how wise a move it is, but for the spring I am teaching fly-fishing. And I need some rods, reels, and lines in trout and bass weights (4-7?) that kids can use. Would you consider lending a setup for the end of the March through mid-June? That's the request. I just need a handful of rods to make it happen.
It's an independent school, but most (85%) of our students are publicly funded, and I don't want to offer my class only to the kids whose daddies can afford to run out and buy them a rod. I'm not interested in anything fancy or too valuable. These are high school kids and they've got a much higher than average chance of breaking something. On the other hand, they are good kids, and with probably less than 8 kids in the class, I can keep an eye on them pretty well.
Let me know if you'd be up for this via pm.
