About this blog

 

 

The enjoyment of using fishing equipment: rod and reel.  I've always been on the side of it doesn't matter, a rod is a rod and a reel is a reel.  The fish don't care.  Well it appears that the fish do care because it's the difference between working a lure and being able to present the lure in the fish's attention zone.
