I was feeling sorry for myself on Christmas. Only a Avet Raptor MXJ, a dozen Big Mac jigs and a pair of Keanon Anacapa sunglasses.
Got a text from my friend & rod wrapper wishing me Merry Christmas and............... he had 6 rods for me!!!!!!
I was working, Got off and drove from...
Picked up a JX this morning from the factory service.
Thank you George and the technicians that rebuilt my reel.
Works far better(25-30%) across the board than when new.
Reel is going into third decade of service. I bought it 2007-2008.
I have used it a lot in the 40-50 bait role.
Are they any good? Want something comparable to Stella 14000 and 18000(thousand, not hundred, right?).
I don't want to bite the bullet on the Shimano even though there are some deals available. Also, I try to avoid their stuff.

Anyone have information/opinions on fishing in Oman?
Looks like the Giant Trevally fishing is outstanding. Other stuff as well. Hallaniyat Island is the place to be.
I've tried to inquire with "No Boundaries", but no luck.
There was a guy posting on B/D on Oman fishing who allegedly resides in...
What a great service experience at Avet this morning!
Maria was awesome. She had my thrashed LX rebuilt in 20 minutes; polished and free spool spinning like a perpetual motion machine.
Also, got EX series clamp nuts and the composite reel clamps.
Thanks again for the great service!
It seems that YouTube has pulled that hilarious video. They have things like I want to catch a giant bluefin tuna or I want to be a hedge fund manager or I'd like to have Russian prostitutes P somewhere. Anybody familiar with this video? And could possibly give me a link to it.
I've got two Roddy jig sticks- both from unwrapped blanks that had never seen the light of day until a three years ago: fishing 40# & 50#. But I think I favor the Trulines more because of versatility. I have Truline jig sticks to fish 25#, 30#, 40#, 50# and 60# surface iron. Don't think Roddy...
There is a wood box posted in the General section. There have been several other boxes posted recently. A couple of years ago a guy named Jim sold custom wooden boxes appropriate for local fishing. That's what I'm using now.
Here is my concern and my pet peeve. I find often that fellow Anglers...
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 bought what you thought was going to be it and was disappointed-many times.
For me it was a green D8 I got at Big 5 in 1971. It was miss marked @ $19.95...
I've heard s few names mentioned and mentioned a few myself in the past few weeks. I started to think about unusual head gear and sport boat captains. So help me out with your recollections!
I'll start out: Captain Ed Frege wore a black Keppi- that round flat topped hat the French military...
