This is the lot of stuff to sell. Some of the feathers were obviously no good so I tossed them. The feathers flat on the table were in his fly tying tackle box.

Poproque,

After looking at all your pictures of the flies and fly tying material I sincerely doubt you could get $40 for the entire lot. The flies in the cardboard box on the right side of the picture are beginner quality with no value. Like I said earlier I would suggest donating them to some Boy Scouts fly tying class, Casting for Recovery, or just keeping a few items for yourself as momentos.

Thank you so much. I found a local charity that teaches not so fortunate kids to fish so that is what I will most likely do with the package. I truly appreciate you honest input!!

Poproque,

You are most welcome. I felt it important to tell you the true value of the goods rather than an inflated unrealistic one.

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

Thanks Jon, I appreciate your comment. I don't believe in sugar coating comments and then people get their high hopes dashed when they go to sell the items.
