  1. Agreed, those articles by "Poppy" are excellent ! The other articles I posted about go into more detail in other areas, also. After all, I don't recall Poppy saying anything about how "hydrodynamic flow" around rocks and other underwater structures affects the contour of the bottom, which one of the other articles did. All in all, they are both excellent reference sources and, when combined, offer even more information to fishermen everywhere, regardless of what "area" you're fishing in ! Tight Lines !
  2. Already done . . .
  3. Use Google and search for these exact phrases . . . "How to Read the Sea - Read the Water-Part 1" and "How to Read the Sea - Read the Water - Part 2" I find it difficult to share information in this manner, but since the site does not allow "LINKS", I will have to provide "search terms" so that people can find it on their own. Tight Lines !
  4. You can "chuck a toaster" with it . . . LOL ! ! !
  5. I'm 53 . . . I had, and still have a 704 ( 704 Z ). . . It was the early 1970's and I went the "new" Skirted Spool route for the increased casting distance and faster retrieve rates, favoring reels like the 450 SS, 550 SS, 650 SS, etc. I tried the "Graphite" 4500 SS & 5500 SS reels, found them to be less durable, and went back to the all-metal reels, which I still use today.
  6. Do a Google search for "Fishing Lure" "flash drive" in the Images section. Also, take a look at this "phonetically-spelled" website . . . http-colon(slash-slash)usblure-dawt-blawgspot-dawt-com
  7. Agreed . . . I am a "fan" of the "old school" reels that last for generations than just a few years, if you "baby" them .
  8. Not so much, after they went away from the Brass gears to the Alloy gears . . .
  9. Simple . . . PENN "Sold Out", when they started having their reels MADE IN CHINA ! ! !
  10. I think I'll download the entire Stripersonline website onto a Thumb Drive, convert it into a Fishing Lure, and fish with that . . . LOL ! ! !
  11. I vote for the 550 SS ( not the Graphite 5500 SS ) . . .
  12. Is THIS a GOOGAN ???
  13. I am firmly convinced that more Lures are designed to catch Fishermen, than to catch Fish . . . LOL !!!
  14. Absolutely . . . If possible, I like to be "hands-on" with as many examples of the same rod or blank, before choosing the one with the "magic" . . . "Magic" is something I can't describe, but when you handle a bunch of "identical" products, it becomes apparent as something in the "feel" of it. Some people may think I'm "crazy", but the evidence is there . . . Try it yourselves !
  15. And SOMETIMES it's the guy REPLYING to a thread, after he says, " I don't know what this thread is about ! ", and then offering all types of CRITICISM and "ADVICE" . . . LOL ! ! !
  16. I might give up on this . . . LOL ! ! !
