Re: Give me the lowdown on building handle on carbon tube

Re: Suggestions for case to protect one piece rods

somewhere i have seen the use of a piece of an old rod or tube being secured to a couple of guides(maybe taped to rod?) and extending past tiptop an inch or more to prevent the rod tip from being "jammed" into the tube cap. may have been a JDM rod shipment. makes sense to me.

Re: If you had to lose all but one...

no, not a spincast, it's an openface spinning reel. in the 60-70's abu built the cardinal 3, 4, and 6 for zebco with an abu badge and a zebco nameplate on some of their excellent spinning reels. i bought one, used, in the mid to late 70's. fished it relentlessly through the decades. i've never had t...

Re: If you had to lose all but one...

i'd have to keep my zebco(yep, zebco) Cardinal 4 reel-consistently perfect for over 40 years! rod would be a G.Loomis sj783 GL3 i built from a blank. 15# braid would do the trick.

Re: Who regularly throws small 3/16-1/4 spinnerbaits?

i enjoy throwing the small single blade H & H spinnerbaits around timber. they're heavy in relation to their size but still have a good thump that'll get bites. chartreuse is always a good color. may try changing blade colors for fun of it.
