I went to bass pro couple of days ago to get some line. I was looking at some reels and noticed reps from daiwa, quantum, and ambassadeur. I sruck up a conversation and then asked when tackle manufacturers were going to wake up and realize we catfisherman buy rods and reels and we would like to have some designed for what we do. I told them they can build a reel to stand up in the ocean but not the river. We need a line of reels especially designed for river use. I am tired of trying this and that at 100 dollars a pop just to see if it will hold up. I know a lot of you will post you have to take care of them. clean and oil and such. I do. But I fish a lot. At least once a week year round. weather permitting. And not bragging I catch some pretty nice fish. They said they would report what I said to the bosses and I went away. I think the company that finally wakes up will make a lot of money. What do you all think? OOPS. I guess I put this in the wrong category. Sorry guys.
