Well, it appears that health and age are pretty much bringing my fishing career to an end. I’ll probably keep a few rigs, but everything else will be offered in the next month or so. (Excuse bold face but I am having serious vision problems.)

A lot of my stuff is old school, but it is all in great condition.


Reels...mostly old school Penns and Shimano Calcuttas.

CALCUTTA 200B...$140
CALCUTTA 400S...power handle...25# mono $140
(I have original Shimano and Tiburon rod clamps for the 400s for $35 each.)

PENN 505 HS $50

PENN 113H $70
PENN 113H $60
PENN 113H $50
PENN 113H WITH ACCURATE FRAME $120

PENN 114H $75 (filled with Dacron)
PENN 114H $75
(I have an extra 6/0 spool for $40.)

KENCOR $25...this is a Kencor reel, not rod

PayPal friends and family or cash.
Reels ship on buyer’s dime. Rods are pick-up or meet in the Ojai, Ventura, Oxnard, Camarillo area.


Sorry if bold face bothers anybody, but I am having extreme vision problems and bold face is much easier for me to deal with.

Thanks Wally

Got your envelope the other day. Glad you have been happy with the "retro" reels you have been buying. All the stuff I am selling now is in comparable condition. Much of it is stuff that I had kept in the place that I had down south. Got rid of that a few years ago so this stuff has just been sitting in my tackle room since.

My dear friend and mentor aged out of bluewater fishing. I tried to talk him into still going and team fish when he hooked up but wouldn't hear of it. If he couldn't bring his "A" game it would then be no game. Glad you're still keeping a few setups for ( just in case ) and remember that there hopefully are options to explore. Best to you Styx.

Thanks for the well wishes BD friends. A couple of guys have asked, so here is what is going on.

I have now been referred to a 6th "specialist" trying to figure out why I have developed severe eye strain, jumbling of letters, inability to focus on near small items (that's why I sometimes use bold face and a larger font), dizziness and vertigo (they are apparently different), a sensation of being in a spinning room, and occasionally I have balance issues and tremors. I have a headache about 75% of the time and I feel "sea sick" whenever I try to read or do any close work within 3-4 feet.

Essentially it appears that my eyes are not coordinating with each other or communicating consistently with my brain. That's all I know for now.
