There was also a thread looking for old fishing equiptment to set to Pacific Island people ( Guam?) who would appreciate any tackle in any condition...to fish with for their livelyhood....if I remember correctly,,,,
One of the teachers in OC Inter School takes the rod/reel/equipt for the kids fishing club. I give him stuff a fw times a year. Before you toss, let me know and I will pick up and take to the school.
