Nice to know I can still fish the same way today as i did back in the day right down to my very first open face reel my uncle bought for me back about 1980. A red diawa millionare. I still have it, it still works but it usually only fishes at home. Thats the only reel I cant replace so I dont want to loose it. I was so proud of that reel when I walked down the road to a fishing hole i was sure to have that reel facing the road so everyone that drove by saw my diawa millionare. I recon that put me about 12 years old.
