You'll be lucky to find one that will pick up your gift.

I tried to get rid of some tackle from my wife's uncle, what a ball ache that was.

In the end it all went to the tip.

One thing I didn't try was charity shops, perhaps a phone round to local shops may work.

When Mercury Taxis were operating, some of the drivers used to organise fishing trips for disadvantaged kids for which I gave them a couple of reels. I see one of the drivers occasionally so i'll ask if they still do it as i've got some stuff they could have.

Good luck

 

When my dad passed I tried giving stuff away, ebay, st lukes. Still got some stuff.

 

There are auction sites but they seem to be mainly for Hardy, split cane etc..

Fly fishing gear can be donated to Fishing 4 Schools via the Ladybower fishery office; I dropped off my (now disabled) fishing pal's gear there last year. They may be grateful for coarse fishing equipment too; you could call them and ask - 01433 659712.

There is an amazing, little known charity based at Abbeydale Industrial hamlet. They teach and help children with special needs. They are always grateful for donations of fishing tackle. We're going there today to donate Dad's fishing tackle. He only passed away earlier this month but we know he'd be delighted that his rods etc will be put to good use. I will post contact details and more info after the visit.
