This scratched and scarred old Veteran and I have been through a lot together in 15 years and it’s caught everything from salmon to stripers to trout and bass…It even helped me land an incidental sturgeon that was 8 feet long and estimated to be 250 pounds…
The poor reel is completely coated in slime, grime and dried up roe crust and has never once been serviced. In fact I hesitate to clean it for fear that all that grime is keeping it together. Plus I’m worried about it losing its mojo if I have it serviced!
Isn’t funny how you can get all sentimental about a piece of fishing gear?
You guys have any old tackle you feel emotionally attached to or is it just me??
