Just need a couple- 18, 20, 25, or bigger. Have a bunch of the smaller ones. For a black D8 I recently got.
WTB- carbide conventional guides. Individual, in larger sizes, or a whole set.
Gold plated ones would be highly prized.
I'd trade you something. You know they were a great rod, but they're not a Truline or even a Silaflex or Roddy. Most people have never even heard...
Know the rod well. My buddy Jeff's favorite rod. He wrapped and we use to go to the plant to pick them up.
There was s tie in between the Special and PEP Jigs. Barney Barnes and wife Eddie put money in to making them. Therefore, itwas no surprise that...
Oh me, oh my! 2 pieces!
Leonard was quite a promoter. 1977 you'd thought every Albacore caught in San Diego was caught on his lure.
Leonard use to come out on the Redondo...
They take a size 16 tip. Looks like that to me
Oh me, oh my! Trade?
I've got one in a package. Interested?
Remember a few years ago he just came off double hip replacements and encouraged me to follow-up having one done which I did.
He was a Sportking...
Jerry- my son's in Santa Cruz. He caught his first yellow on an LM8 & first Bluefin on a cut TNT. I have an agent in the area! He knows his rods....
I'm trying to buy it.
Time warp. Wow!
Sorry to hear this. Wish I could have fished with him more.
I heard that the Maritime Museum at the foot of 6th Street in San Pedro has a huge quantity of vintage stuff that has been donated. Some went to a...
Too bad it's not silver.
Roger that. Gave him your information. Good luck selling it. Clean. Brings back memories.
Think I have a buyer. Most likely he will offer you a "buck and a half". He's a good kid. Deckhand on Freedom. He took a few casts with mine today...
Sishkabab- here's my mule!
Hey- the 3/4 day boats don't always go to Catalina. I heard Aaron fished barracuda down the line last Thursday, but then went to the Island. But,...
Gaining some traction!!!!!
Got a South African. Still have not got it wrapped. Took an 8'7" Silaflex- circa 1976, Browning- out fishing on...
Hey Irv- this post is going over like the proverbial lead balloon!
Picked up a Black D8-H last week. Never in my wildest dreams could I imagine...
Whoa there, cowboy! Pike, big damn Pike...... Check out American Hardwood Lures. The Lac Sul twin turbo will out fish those puppies any day of the...
Sure glad Jerr mentioned the " tightness & de- lamination " thing. Watch out. Also, a sign of heavy use. You'll see shinny rods with bad butts. I...
Does it say "Neptuna" anywhere?
Avets correspond to traditional ways of talking about reels. An Avet LX is roughly a 2/0-3/0, that is, it has a 2.4 inch in diameter spool. The HX...
Remember "Major League"?
OK Guys, you Mavens, you Princes of the bending stick:
What is the greatest rod of all time and why?
We all have one. You all have one. You...
El Rey Tut gave me a Silaflex catalog from 1968. They made big game rods and they all had wood butts.
Hey Ernie- me too! Need corners preferably stainless. Go to several hardware stores and ask them. They look at me like I'm speaking Serbo-Croatian!
Hey Jim! Lets get this out of the way, your boxes rock!!!! As bad of an idea as the Avet nuts are, your boxes, on the other hand, are the best...
And got a free hat!
Never skimp on the rod. You don't want it to break, have cheap guides crack, fall off, reel seats twist and have no recourse as the warranty is...
"From last run"........?
My last run was 12years, 6 months & 13 days ago, if you know what I mean.
Anyway, "Fuji-kid" rod? Circa 2003-4 or do you...
Mike Inscore is re-wrapping a TNT for me. Not the one I caught the Swordfish on, that one is a little lighter. Original owner- got it when I...
WTB rocket launchers.
Want two on each side of a wooden box. They must sit a little bit away from the box about 3/4 of an inch.
Hey- the most important question is not gas mileage, but does it come equipped with Lawry's seasonings and marinades?
Whoa..... In case you haven't noticed, I'm the only interest you have had.
If it has been cut from the butt I'll pay you a fair price. If from the...
It's cut from what end?
Bottom end and you have a buyer.
I'll trade you a D8H.
What is your price point? I've got one with Accurate gears. New. Never been outside.
Backwards indeed! Paid a guy on the SportKing $10 for and old PUTTER like jig last summer. First thing I did was sand the paint down, of course....
Jesus! That's $3.45 per inch on the TNT! Hell, I've got a 31/2' piece. Should be worth close to a "buck and a half''
More details on the 6X?
Oh me, oh my!
Are hip boots still made? Red Ball and Uniroyal were the two brands I remember. Mostly a deckhand thing, but some passengers would have them too....
Remember the old joke- How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Practice, practice, practice!
Also, hope your not using a graphite rod. If...
Great! Buddy of mine bought one, too.
Learning how to use it. So far, have it in the "Island" configuration, using two 3600 boxes for hooks,...
Along with yoyo#1 one of the best yoyo jigs ever made- heavies. I have a bunch of yo-yo 1 lights, too
What else you got there in the racks?
No ® is older. Got some 250" s with price tags that indicate circa 1967 with ®.
8'- D8, M/MH8, 15-80, 10-60, 5X, 6X, 36, 39, SX, CX.
7'- XR, D7, M7, TNT.
List not meant to be exhaustive, just a start.
Have you guys ever thought about what goes into making a jig? Well, you have to have a design, a manufacture process, materials, labor, local &...
Great looking jig. Don't think I have ever seen one that was painted. Tut should have the Hx. Notice the split rings. Quite a few big sellers of...
My "so-called" BR100 is in the wrapping machine as we speak. When Mike Inscore finishes it up, I'll put some pics up.
Does anybody have an H9? I...
Hey Al- your welcome.
402? 300? You can keep the 308.
I'm serious as a heart attack! That rod you have is an abortion at best albeit a factory one. It's a hobby project for somebody like me. I've made...
Now, now. I'll take it off your hands. I can strip it, put 6 inches on the butt and get a 20# rod out of the deal.
As for having value in the...
In case you guys have not been around as long as I have, the only true prediction I know is that following an El Nino, Albacore. Usually early and...
They have a Truline 4X for $150, too. I'd pay $100 if it was Dahl's signature.
Call them. Ask for Alex. Tell him Tony sent you; if you know what I mean.
Great!. Good God, I missed this; thank Heaven that this thread is not in the Jigging & Popping section.
Anyway, don't think anyone mention...
Well, John, in that case, I'll be up in your neck of the woods in early June. I'm visiting my son in Santa Cruz. Please allow me to take you out...
They'll swim just fine.
Wow. Guess I hit a nerve.
Here is a simple proposal: send me one of those "amazing" blanks. I do have a rod wrapper employed almost full time....
Jim- thanks for a second time! I like my second box even more than the first!
You guys on B/D better jump on what's left!
Where's the "factory'' handle? Did you actually want that handle for some reason? At least it's a DPX and not a BX!
What is the equivalent model in Phenix ? So, we can buy it and support a local outfit.
Hey- I should get one and put it on a string on my wood tackle box just so the guys with the "soft pack'' boxes can use it rather than the latches...
Texastuna on B/D is your man. Heard he moved back to the where the ''stars at night are big and bright". He fished a lot of long range in the 10+...
Save the one with maple sides and dark granite top/ bottom. Can pick it up tomorrow.
What's that military saying: 1 is 0 & 2 is 1. Got to have a...
Think I took the dacron off. Surely, your after the dacron rather than the reel. Right?
What colors left, Jim?
Remember going to the Roddy factory in 1962 for a tour. Still had the '54 Belair. I was 10.
Fished a 8'6" Roddy last year. Had it for about 7-8...
Don't miss too many Hetzels or CPL's though.
Long rod addiction! Oh me, oh my!
Hey, what is the spool diameter on the Daiwa? Greater than 2.4 inches and you will start to have problems with...
20mm exit lens?
Mamma Mia! D'you just get outta Singsing?
Hey Tony- dems was only $23.95 band spanking new. Yours ain't, capiece?
Got a bunch of blanks. Those two sardine 4x's I got with you, Bob, I have one and gave Mike I. the other.
Why don't you just JRI 3's to fish with....
I've been using Newell stuff since the early 70's. Conversions, 300c's, Blackie's, and the rest. I still use them, a lot. I prefer reels with...
I got x7 small jigs in one square. Mostly x3. Got x2 JRI 5s in one square. x2 JRI 8s & x3 6s in a couple of others. With one row removed for the...
As an alternative to Owner try Wolverine triple split rings. The guys in Illinois, ships, and cost is great. These triple split rings were...
You can see how Accurate influenced the overall design. Once visited the plant near Brescia and Solfarino.
OK Jim, I will call. Leaving Van Nuys at 4pm. We will talk about where to meet later.
Not ''the super seekers", musta' mean "the Tru-i-line".
Again, prayer. All good things come in time.
2 am. and your thinking about "not Seekers". Holy shit. New blood!
S/D tackle traders had one- $400. I pulled on it. Decent rod. LM9.
Havertown, Austin! Do they work at the confluence of the Allegany and Monogahela Rivers or the Gar lick 'em in the Impoundments?
Second generation Schnabels? What do you want to pay? What condition?
How about hooks? They had unusually small diameter rear rings of a finer...
What I never liked about the Bada Bing is that was over so quick there was no time for a courtesy reach around.
That's a BX, right? Triple dog? Or zero?
You ignored my P/M which is alright Same question: What else do you have?
Might be interested in the BR90 or a BR100, but not without seeing them....
Think Tut is out of town. So am I. Both of us are close. Ill be back Sunday.
What do you need? I've got a lot of old stuff.
Notice the split...
Hey, "success stories", a sinker with a treble hook on it catches fish. So do waxwings. It would be money not well spent, but not wasted. They do...
You might fish it and not like it. Got a Harnell from Ernie Prieto in '92. Got it wrapped in'04. Caught one yellow it, put it in the rack. Went to...
I've never gotten the whole tackle bag deal. For plastic and iron I have direct access to them by simply opening up the box., Sinkers, hooks,...
Hard to find, indeed.
Collectible, paperweight that is.
''Low frequency wooshing", WTF! That's my 23 cents worth.
TNT. Truline or Seeker.
Got anything else?
Did anyone think to bring a Harnell? In "jigging speak" I suppose they are the ultimate "slow pitch" rod. Some guys kill for those things. I've...
Are those "Monster" rods clones of the ATC's that Tady marketed a decade ago?
I have two. Lifetime guarantee, too! Oh, that's right. Went out of...
This season I'm not planning on fishing less than 40#. Clear 40# XXX is about the same diameter as what we use to call 30#. May also go to...
Hey Blake- looks just like the one I gave you except mine had better guides!
Titos wants $2.75 for a taco next store. Johnnies must be the home of the $20.00 pastrami.
"Black Robin", my favorite weird jig. Tut has a very odd one I let get away. Jerry Esten, I believe, has the molds. Right Jerry?
Not that uncommon incidental catch in the Spring in that area. I remember growing up looking at the Barracuda counts. A thousand 'scooters'', two...
Contact Jesse, "Texastuna" on B/D. I know he has Varmacs w/ Truline on them.
300c in 501, 99, 500, and 500W. Great reel. Have to brand new ones w/ 5 to 1 gears, beefed up drags and three hole handles(red & green).
Eric's web site has got a posting of a House of Jigs. 9 or 10 models. Really good stuff. Stuff that worked. An excellent spread. Only JRI has that...
Tut's been piecing a history of the MAC jig. Mac's Atomic Worm initiated the standard colors we have today & at one time all Tady jigs were made...
Jerry- I've been fucked in the ass a couple of times in San Diego w/o lube and not even a courtesy reach around.
Does that count?
WTB- anyone have any Mildrum conventional guides?
Little pricy on the 36, and I need another one like I need a hole in the head. Sure like the guides though. Interested in trading anything? Call...
Oh albacore, just checked out that web site you mentioned. Do you know the relevant South Park episodes?
Whoa! I don't see surface iron mentioned anywhere. No point of departure.
The cast metal surface iron was developed by Capt. Jim Putter. First...
"Rotational inertia", indeed! Hence, Newells with graphite spools & Penn's with plastic spools cast best. There, of course, were problems- they...
P.S.- don't cheat yourself by looking for short cuts. Comparing it to golf. Do you went a 300yd. tee shot or a 175yd. one?
Send your thumb to graduated school to get a Phd. in Cast Control. Most anglers can't cast because they are unwilling to practice or persist in...
How about that spread?
I've found the MC system to be useful under only one circumstance. That is, when it is very rough and you are being tossed around. My thumb has a...
What do you want for the 16/80 and the 6/50?
Perhaps a more revealing picture to two!
Like the thumb bar. Going to put my Accurates, Penn's, Newells, Shimano, Daiwas, & Avets up for sale!
Years ago when I was young and "Goats" were still plentiful at the Chanel Islands, I used a 14'' forequarter breaking knife to fillet them. I...
