    tonite i went by my pops to see how he was doin and i watched a couple episodes of beverly hillbys and 3 episodes of andy griffith before his supper was ready . one of the episodes of andy showed andy and opey comeing in with fishing poles in hand and it sure looked like andy had an abu maybwe a 5000 series size reel on his pole . i thought that was pretty neat .
    i wish i remembered exact episode but it escapes memory at the moment .
    anyone else ever see this episode?would be cool to see if it was a one time fluke or if they always showed him useing this reel even if it was a prop
    its neat they used an abu for the purpose .

    Gotta remember almost all of the bass reels from back then looked fairly identical also.

    did you ever see the episode where Andy traded his fishing pole (thats what he called it)? the name of his rod and reel combo was Old Eagle Eye Annie. I know the episode you are talking about though. it does look like an old Abu model, but i cant be sure though. Oh and by the way, my mom is a die-hard Andy Griffith fan, so i have seen ever show they ever made.
