What's your favorite reel?

fishing reels

Facebook often leaves a lot to be desired.

Privacy aside, North American Fishing Club posed an interesting question the other day--If you could pick only one reel to fish with the rest of your life what would it be?


Over the years, some reels have stood the test of time. For spinning reels, it's hard to beat the old Mitchell 300 (Saw that one coming, didn't you?) although I use a Pflueger most of the time.

When it comes to spincasters, I'm always going to be partial to my old Zebco 33. I'll go even further back and pick the old Johnsons as my second choice. These reels have pretty simple works so when they go, that's it. BUT, if you're lucky enough to have one that has held up, you've got something.

A lot of people don't like baitcasters. Maybe you have to shell out some bucks and get a good one to start with instead of working your way up. I'm pretty sold on my Daiwa which was a gift in a price range I could never afford. On the other hand, I've seen several anglers stick with their Abu- Garcia Ambassadeur and some of them have been around a long time--both the reels and their owners!



Remember to take the hooks outta yer pocket before ya sit down!
