Do you value fishing equipment, No, not sure my late husband

This answer was rated:

Do you value fishing equipment
JA: The Antiques Appraiser can help. You can also send photos once I've connected you. Do you know how old the item is?
Customer: No
JA: What condition is the item in?
Customer: not sure my late husband fished from a teenager until his late 80’s. I have two hardy rods. #10 hardy favourite graphite salmon fly rod, 15’, 47YCM, C-C-45933 and a Harry’s #6 jet fly rod. I don’t know if they have any value.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: That is as much information that I have. I think they are in reasonable condition.

I apologise as we have not yet been able to find a Professional to assist you. Do you wish for me to continue to search for someone to assist you or would you like for us to close your question at this time?
Thank you for your patience,

Thank you for your patience! A moderator requested that I assist. The 15' #10 Hardy graphite salmon fly rod would sell for 120 to 150 pounds while the #6 jet fly rod would sell for 80 to 120 pounds. There's a nice market for these vintage fly rods!

Again, thank you and please let me know if I may be of further help with this question.
