COVID 19 and reels

Have to say that this year has been like no others. Masks, quarantine, slow mail, business closures, partial openings, more closures. Its exhausting to say the least. Idaho has certainly not had it as bad as most others. Somehow through it all, everyone that fishes seemed to find time to get out or at least determined their reels needed some love. We thank everyone who … Continue reading COVID 19 and reels

Bearings Bad, we have a puller!

I received my package yesterday from a fine gentleman in Chula Vista. In it was several unique bearing pullers for those pesky pocket bearings that just don’t want to come out. Several sizes to fit most needs. I had a Shimano Tekota side plate that I had given up on. The anti reverse bearing was bad and it was stuck in the side plate. 10 … Continue reading Bearings Bad, we have a puller!

I would recommend them for … Continue reading Shimano Charter Special Fishing Reel – Upgraded

Daiwa Tatula 8.1:1

Light and smooth. Spool is a thing of beauty.  Fine gears to produce the 8:1 ratio.  Great for throwing 1/8 jigs.  Many use it for steelhead fishing in the PNW.  Not the greatest drags for that application but you could do it,  I worry about the gear and pinion after a few hot steelhead but it would cast like a dream all day long!  Some … Continue reading Daiwa Tatula 8.1:1
