    Found these in the shed, turns out their my grandpa's and he said I could inherit them since he doesn't fish anymore.

    There was one Millionair and another Abu in there also, but they didn't function properly so he took em' to work on.

    That's awesome! You can't beat that, for sure. You'd better be doing a lot of work around Grandpa's house in return for that treasure chest. What kind of rods are they?

    Actually his house burnt down a while back and he lives with me.

    The rods, well... nothin I can really brag about I guess. The three in the middle are some kinda big game rods, I think one is made by eagle claw. The first one I think he made himself and the rest I wouldn't trust if I caught anything over 20lbs. I am probably gonna buy some Team Catfish 3/4 TON rods to put under em'. I hear it's cheaper on shipping if I buy a couple at a time instead of 1 by 1. So when the money becomes available then I can buy 3 or 4 of em'.
