    Most of us have a safety & repair kit for us and the boat but….

    How many of us have a first-aid kit for our rods and reels?

    I did an article on this on my website and for an outdoor paper I write for. Got a lot of positive feedback on this subject. With a lot of people sending in suggestions saying they would need this or not need that… That is what makes it “fun” each of us would have to set it up for our own equipment, but the idea is still the same. I mean parts for Ambassadeur’s would not work for Diawa reels and so on…

    I have a little “kit” with extra line pawls for the Ambassadeur’s, some small screws for all the reels, extra handle and rod tips and eyes, clear finger nail polish to seal on the rod eyes and a few other little things that you may need for rods and reels.

    Just thought I would pass along the idea to everyone here…

    Never gave much thought to fixin a reel or rod on the boat while fishin. With regs in place that only allow 2 rods per person I take a couple of extra outfits for that just in case situation. They stow away real nice in the sides of the boat outa the way. Not only that but I am a big advocate of travelin lite with what ya need. I would'nt wanna keep track of more gear on the boat.

    I have never carried repair parts for reels in the boat. It sounds like a good idea. I have always carried a few extra rods/reels in case of a problem. What is one more little box or kit?

    especially if you just leave it in the boat, no need to constantly load and unload it. just leave it in there! :cool2:
