paying it forward
« on: Jan 05, 2016, 06:10 PM »
So there was a guy on this site offering some feathers for fly tying for free with postage paid by him, So I was the lucky guy who got them today.  So it's my turn to offer something for free, I have three tungsten bite indicators (the ones you attach to the end of your rod) also some new fuel lines for a strikemaster auger (I got them for my lazer pro but sold it and forgot to ship these with it) so PM or reply to this post first come first served. tight lines

Good on you for doing that. Nothing i need personally, but thats what made me want to join this community after lurking. A lot of folks willing to help.

Hmm. This is a fantastic idea for a thread though.... Everybody that receives something from another member for free, must then pay something forward to another member

I would take the bite indicators if they are still available. I also have something to put up to pay it forward ;D

GREAT IDEA for a thread Lostbrit!!  Glad the feathers made it to you, and I never would have expected anything like this to start rolling!  This is gonna be fun to see where it goes!!  May I suggest one thing??  Shipping must be paid for by the sender.  TOTALLY FREE was the idea when I sent the goose feathers.  Let's see how far this goes!

Good on you for this thread idea!!!  If this takes off, can we make it a sticky??

Big Ice Hole, did you say you had some tipups to pay forward?  I've never used them, and would like to try it out.  If the tipups are still available, I'll take one.  I've got more stuff I can pay forward!

This is awesome!!!

Awesome!!!  Thank you!!!  To pay it forward, I am offering up a full pheasant hide, minus the tail feathers, for tying flies and jigs.  It is professionally tanned, lays flat, and is in perfect condition.

Just had a thought.  If this thread continues, might be a good idea to post when something has been spoken for.  Might keep ya from getting a bunch of continued replies, and everyone would know if it was still available or if it had been taken through a PM??  Might be some sort of format to keep all this straight, but don't know for sure how to do it.  Like I said, just a thought....

Also, since we went through such a flurry there for a bit, what is still available as of now? 

I have a full pheasant hide minus the tail feathers still available.

Great idea for a thread! I have seen these types of threads on a lot of boards, sadly they all end the same way.. Either some youngster finds it and sees it as free gear and takes everything, or 3-5 people just sit and trade gear back and forth. The second is against the rules here so watch out for that! Giving some stuff away to people who need it is awesome! I will sort through some stuff, in sure i have some stuff i can give to others in need!

Well Karma is a real thing, if you ice fish you need as much "good" as you can get. Also, it's not like someone is going to put up a Ion auger or something.

awesome thread!  i am not in need of anything, but i have many assorted frozen duck/goose wings and quite a few pheasant tail feathers i would love to find new homes for if people can put them to good use for fly tying or dog training.  I would also be willing to part with a large collection of jigs i no longer use.  PM me if your interested and i will post back when the items are no longer available.

Awesome thread! Cool of everyone who has given stuff so far. I'm sure I could find some stuff I'm not using anymore. I'll keep my eye on this one.

I'll take that (pm sent) and offer a heated tipup box to anyone interested.





I made it on a whim, never used it. I'm keeping the fly reel so you'll need to buy a cheapie to use on it.
