    Fishing rods?

    Ive had these rods for many years and never really used them, what appears to be rust is actually patina and dust, (and a little dirty) can anyone tell me if they're worth holding on to or not?

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    No idea, but that cane rod might be worth a few $$$.

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.

    Campagnolo rods are uber rare, and much nicer than Shimano. I'm not old school enough to know about those relics you have though. CF rods rule.

    The bamboo rod with the reversible guides might have some collectibility. The other has nice hand wrapping over the guides but that was pretty common back in the day. The reels look to be older Penns. There's an eBay market for those.

    I'm kinda hoping to give them to future grand children if they are nice rods, as I mentioned, fishing isn't my thing, and both my daughters don't really like to fish, so I figure they are 25 and 21 so one of them just may make me a grandfather some day soon, so I figure one of the "grandfatherly" things to do would be to take the grand kids fishing, and if I'm going to do that I figure why not do it with some fancy smancy vintage rods that may be worth something to them should they decide that fishing is not their thing. .
