Iceland trip shared rod

Post by Moose57 » Tue Jan 30, 2018 8:02 am

I am looking for someone interested in going in on a shared rod for Weatherby’s 6 day Iceland trip Aug 31 through Sept 7 (www.weatherbys.com). The price is $3995 (each) double occupancy, airfare not included (approx $5700 for a single rod). Contact sls@tritonev.com if interested (and/or Jeff McElvoy at Weatherby’s for trip details).

Have fly rods gone up that much in price? If we share the rod and it is 4 pieces, which two do I get to keep?

What the fuck are you going to do with half a rod? This is a scam. I suggest you pass on this one.

What year is this trip? I'm good for either 2017 or 2042.

Are you amenable to a guy with a shaved head who is just learning to cast? Asking for a friend who is interested in Iceland.

Whoa, wait a minute.... this ain't no Icelandic trip. This is for Maine, USA. I've already been told there are no fish in Maine so I'm gonna have to pull out on this one. Sorry bud.
