I'm bored. I was trying to play the piano yesterday and realized I'd forgotten how to read sheet music. So in this exercise it would help me remember what fishing gear I have collected over the years. A few days ago I opened my reel drawer and realized that I had an Abu 5500. I was like, I didn't know I had one. lol

everyday bay lure fishing combo :
*Abu Garcia Silver Max with 14#mono on a 8'6" two piece Daiwa DXS
Quantum Boca with 14# mono on a 8'6" two piece Okuma Celilo

bass fishing combo:
- above.
- a cheap Sougayilang casting reel with 12#mono on an ancient Lamiglas 7' rod
- Pflueger contender on a 6'6" Pflueger contender rod

shore bait fishing combo:
Yumoshi spinning reel with 14# mono on 7' Ugly stick tiger lite

I got more for other types of fishing but above are what I've used lately. And * is what I use 99% of the time

I’ve got way too much stuff I’ll never use, got a lot of older reels that I probably should get rid of. Too many old school Daiwas and penns.
