I have several rods that my landlord gave me to identify and sell. They are antique looking and I do not know much about these. One is a bamboo boat rod, while the others just look old. I tried uploading pictures to the site, but have not seen them appear in my list.

The bamboo rod looks like a Calcutta bamboo build, an inexpensive rod and build back in the day. The old commercìal tuna fishing films where there is a whole deck full of fisherman with no reels, heavy poles with a short line and big jig that gets bent over double as they drag a big tuna on deck, were made on Calcutta bamboo.

Thanks. Think any of the other rods are worth anything? Chances are Ill try selling them as a 'vintage fishing gear lot' on @#$%& to get the best chance to sell.

They have very little, if any, monetary value. More novel as antiques than anything else.

I'll give you $50 for the rod with the closed face spinner, the bamboo, and the rod with the silver/steel reel and the red wrap above the fore grip. We can do a PayPal deal. I'll pay freight.

Let me think about it a bit. That might be a good deal. What if you were to take all of it?

Ken, I want the items listed for wall hangers at my fishing camp, but if you want to toss the the rest in, I'll take them. Tom knows what he's talking about, value wise.
