    Better? Perhaps. These days the incremental advances are often more to sell gear than to measurably improve performance. As my gear eventually wears out (if I live that long!), or if it truly becomes obsolete, I will upgrade. I am not at all opposed to that! Anyone have a better cow reel than a Makaira 50 II SEa? I suppose you can debate it, but I have had mine for years, and they remain state of the art.

    I keep looking for a better hook, or better line. I can't see myself swapping out my rods (United Composites) or reels (Okuma, Daiwa) anytime soon.

    When my best fishing buddy Ray Jarvis aka Hollywood aka Iron Thrower passed away about 7 years ago I get a call from his wife ...she tells me Ray in his will he left me all his fishing equipment so I need to come get it....

    Holy cow completely filled my 4 Runner hundreds of jigs and lures bundles of both fresh water and saltwater rods...bags of reels and tools giant spools of line...rod tubes, ice chests, rain gear, tackle bags stuffed with stuff etc etc etc..it was pretty crazy.....he got the last laugh ...RIP Ray.

    I made a list and sealed it in an envelope marked "open after I die". She can be mad at me then.

    Not a real ho, but an amateur collector. I’m like a few of these other guys- I just can’t find that much more stuff that I need. I use my credit card rewards from work to get Amazon cards so most of my stuff is limited to there.

    Just get an addiction to Popping and Jigging and watch your tackle whore problem multiply exponentially to where you have to go to meetings and stuff:

    2x the rods , 2x the reels and 100x the lures..... Not too mention that every tackle box now weighs over 100 lbs filled with all kinds of weird jigs .

    When going on a LR trip they need to get the crane out for my tackle box(s)

    LOL help I need MORE!

    IMG_20180419_100707122.jpg There's roughly$3,000 worth of reels. Having rods built for two of them right now. I try to avoid paying exorbitant prices 4 Factory fly rods so I have my rod wrapper build them. They are considerably cheaper that way. Not much difference then having any kind of Rod wrapped.

    35 years worth of tackle acquisitions. 30+ rods, and even more reels. More shit than I will ever need, but I keep getting more! Been fishing long range for 30 years, local since the early 70’s. I could likely outfit an entire boat. Even have a line machine, just because filling heavy tuna reels don’t really work any other way.
