From the seller: 

"As we discussed today, I have a bamboo fly rod for sale. I purchased new when I was a teenager. It was used about ten times and then put in its case and stored.
I searched the web and found a site (customrodsmith@gmail.com) and saw the same rod at $360. I am willing to take half that ($180)."
