This time of year we reinvest in our oils and greases for the new year. Each has an application based on the reel type, size and if it’s saltwater or freshwater fished. Here are several that have proven superior in their category for our customers. The venerable and reliable Carl’s drag grease for all carbon […]
Cabela’s branded reels
Well the time has come to scratch this off the list of serviceable reels. Cabela’s will not sell parts for their reels, instead they just want you to buy another reel. One and done. Seems short sighted to me and many others but hey they are in the business to sell new reels. If your […]
Mono or braid line spooling
Starting today if you need line put on your reel after service or repair we are ready to help. We invested in a line winder and spool tension device to load braid or mono or both! We have the tools to properly join hollow braid to mono top shots. We use Jerry Brown hollow braid […]

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 […]

Good level wind reels with stainless steel where it counts. Flush the bearings, some carbon fiber drags greased with Cal’s and they are back fishing!
wow another nice bonefish!
