A Blast From The Past

 The boy has an infectious smile and knows what to do with a long rod.

2017 Gear Purchases

I have been a shimano stradic user for 18 years.  I am changing reels for 2017.  The stradic bale spring has failed in the last three shimano reels. They didn't even make an entire season.

I purchased a Battle II 3000 for pike last year and it handled 2 40 inch pike with no problem.

I will be buying three Penn Battle II reels shortly.  One in the 4000 series and 2 in the 2500 series.

The T handles on these reels are amazing and give you control immediately upon hook up.

Still staying with my fenwick rods.
