I am looking to purchase a Sage LL 469 graphite III in particular.
I know this rod is a little out of the scope of the rods featured on this forum, but I also know that many of you also own rods heavier than 3 weights. (There was even just such a rod offered for trade several years ago on this forum)
Why would I want such a rod? Well let me tell you.....
I need a short rod to fish several Cutthroat creeks I fish in the Rockies. These tight little creeks are willow bound and fairly narrow. They also can hold Cutthroats over 20". I will be throwing large attractors to these fish and need something that will easily handle larger flys I like to use. I also like graphite rods for the actions, quickness, recovery, and ruggedness.
If anyone has such a rod or knows someone who would part with their's I would appreciate the lead.
You'll be helping out a fellow Trout enthusiast pursue his dreams.

A friend of mine has one. It is in original tube and sock and is mint. How much are you willing to pay? I'll let him know.

Well I want to pay as little as possible of course. Make me an offer. I'd like to keep it under $350.
This is a super specialty rod for me. There are only 2 creeks in Wyoming that really call for something shorter than 7'.
I would like to explore them further with this short rod.
If that's not enough give me a call, 210-415-6822, I'll see if we can work something out.

Well he decided that he wants to keep it. Between rods, reels, and shotguns he could open a shop.

Are sure there's no price he would sell it?
Have him call me.

I emailed him your number. Hope it works out for you. I have seen the rod and it is a nice one.

How about send me his number?
I'll call him and the worse that can happen is he'll say no.
