Spare spools?

Thu, 2008-05-01 15:26

pete, does it come with additional plastic 'jars'? (Or do you just swap the reel body and spool? Foot in mouth)

The 'stainless steel solid handle' adds a nice understated bling factor! 

Tongue out

(Yes, definately ingeneous!)

Hi Ya,

That is a classic.  Notice he has even 'filed' down the lip on hte lid of the spool to reduce drag.  This boy knows what he is doing.

Spare line and tackle is

Fri, 2008-05-02 07:04

Spare line and tackle is stored in the 'spool' jar.  Bait in the rear jar.  If imported into Australia, the rear jar lid would be removed and stubby holder inserted.

With this sort of ingenuity, I'm sure this bloke is an expert fisho and does a fine job in supplying his family AND friends with fresh fish.

Hi Ya,

you are proably right.  The tragedy though is that if someone sent him a decent rod and reel, he'd probably get killed for it.Frown
