As I'm spending the weekend going over my tackle, reels, and plugs getting ready for the spring striper run I now know why I can't seem to sell any of my equipment. The memories of fish caught on them totally brings back the experience. I have a few that are more than 35 yrs old. and I can still remember using them as a kid fishing with my dad. I know I have my go to "s that I fish all the time now. The older stuff is just too sentimental for me to part with.
