Well, my mom had some problems w/ mice in her garage, so she asked me to lay some of those sticky glue traps down today. While I was rumaging around in the garage I came across two old fishing rods, One is an old silver Daiwa Rs 2000 on the original Daiwa rod with Red and White guides on a green blank that I used to throw bombers on when I was a teenager. the other was my Mitchell 430 on an old fenwick that I used to fish the lake behind the house with.
Both reels are in great shape after alittle TLC, cleaning, oiling, and a lube job. I think the Diawa was the reel I caught my first striper with wow did they bring back memories. I remember wade fishing w/ the mitchell for stocked trout and having a BIG OLD 2 1/2 ft round snapping turtle steal two trout from my gill chain right off my waist. It scared the crap out of me . I remember catching all you wanted Blues on the Manasquan rocks on a rattle trap w/ the Daiwa..The GOOD OLD DAYS !!!!!!

That's awsome finding old memories, my Dad gave me the rods and reels we used to fish with when I was a kid. The poles are green fiberglass with wood handles with Penn Senator reels that are in working condition. I had the reels refurbished and plan to fish them someday if I ever get back into trolling.

I can't wait to blow that Diawa up on some stripers and Blues again....I would probably save the reel for my Son.....but I only have daughters so saving it would be pointless.probably could never find parts for it...The diawa Rod would be a great surf rod for Bucktailing flounder as it has a light action tip and fairly stiff backbone and tosses 3/8 to 2 oz a mile...

Don't let my wife hear that, she outfishes every other person I bring out! And my daughter might just be learning to walk this summer, but you better believe she'll be tossing that drop net around in no time!!!!! May 18th can't get here soon enough!!!!
