    A neighbor lady that I have been mowing her grass free since her husband died called and told me to come over and bring my pickup. She gave me all his old fishing gear that he used when they were living on the coast as she was selling her house and moving. About 2/3 rds of the reels was non level winding and the rest level winding plus the rods and tackle. Not sure what I'll do with all of them but it was much appreciated.

    You could allways donate to the less fortunate with those you dont want?

    Did i mention i was/am less fortunate. Seriously the woman must feel your a good man or she would have just sold them.

    Back when I decided to get rid of a lifetimes worth of bass fishing rods & reels, I started carrying a couple with me every time I went fishing. Most were very good quality stuff, plus dozens of Zebco 33's. While fishing, every kid I saw got handed one rod & reel and a few lures. Took two summers to rid myself of those.
    No yard sale could have made me feel better.

    Bill congrats on hitting the jackpot. That lady had to have a lot of confidence in you to give her husbands equipment to you.

    No better feeling than seeing a kid catch a fish. Even if they just catch a dink cat fish! The glow in the eyes and the proud feeling they show is priceless!

    You did good!

    Hats off to all you guy's for giving to the kids, I've helped out dozens over the years myself. If nothing more than a lure or pack of hooks or just helping them with rigging or knots.....I remember the older guy's giving me a leg up. It sure makes you happy when you see them catching fish!:big_smile:
