The Great Restoration
When you decide to restore a fishing rod, you are joining the thousands of fisherman, vintage rod dealers, and hobbyists who have jumped on the band wagon recently. On the high end, these poles can go for $600 or even more. If you know what you are doing, there is a possibility that you truly can make a significant income selling the rods and reels.
If you are serious about making a part time income, you can learn a lot about how to get started, and even intermingle with others who are interested in the same things you are.
