Hello from Edmonds, WA! 

Was mostly a freshwater bass guy for years and years, sending my reels off for work once a year with no problems.  Recently started kayak fishing in the salt and my gear is taking a beating!  Getting paid service for my reels now will likely cost too much money and take too much time so decided to start down the path of learning how to service my own. 

Mostly fishing Daiwa but recently had a great deal on a Abu Toro S61 that I couldn't pass up and thought that there must be something I can do before fishing this new reel to "prep" it for saltwater abuse.  Was directed here on a question about preventative maintenance on a new reel via NWKayakAnglers.com - this looks to be one of the premier reel discussion sites!

I'll be doing some deep reading for a bit but newb questions sure to be coming soon on the topic of "preventative maintenance" (that seems to be the term tossed around here for this?).  If anyone has any articles or posts that spell it out and holds your hand would love to see those...

Welcome aboard bpm2000!

Before first light — with nothing less than wonder, and humility — I scan the cool, dark waters for the coming horizon — and the hope of what that deep unknowing might hold for me today...

——————————————————

Nothing happened. The fish just moved away slowly and the old man could not raise him an inch. His line was strong and made for heavy fish and he held it against his back until it was so taut that beads of water were jumping from it. Then it began to make a slow hissing sound in the water and he still held it, bracing himself against the thwart and leaning back against the pull. The boat began to move slowly off toward the north-west.

Santiago knew what he was in for, his lifelong experience had prepared him...

bpm2000,
Welcome.... enjoy your stay, lots of good info to be had here....
get some good graese, save your old toothbrushes, and dive in.  Many will help if you get in a jam.
I actually prefer the cheap little "flux" brushes for soldering copper pipe,... cut them down 1/2 way, and grease away Grin

Hello Everyone!  I'm Defender, coming to you live from beautiful Hastings, Nebraska.  What, you don't know where Hastings is?  Look in about the middle of the U.S. and you'll find Nebraska.  Look in about the middle of Nebraska and you'll find . . . . . nothing, or not much.  Go just south from the middle of nothing and you'll find Hastings.  There are tremendous fishing opportunities in parts of Nebraska, just not around here.  That doesn't diminish my love for fishing, or my enjoyment of Penn reels (older is better).  I grew up fishing for trout in small creeks up in the mountains of Colorado.  That's where my heart will always be, though the old homestead is gone.

I'm in my mid-50's, and retired.  Not by choice, mind you.  The way that I sometimes put it is that middle age has not been kind to me.  Rather than dwell on the negative, I choose living in the best ways that I can.  This includes getting more and more involved in some of my favorite activities, like fishing and hunting and shooting and just about everything else that my wife can't stand.  I started collecting Penn reels at least 10 years ago.  I'm not sure exactly when.  As some sort of a concession to SWMBO, I have pared down the collection a bit.  I particularly like Squidders and Beachmasters and Surfmasters.  Actually, I haven't seen an older Penn I didn't like.  My collection includes several bags of reels.  What do I mean by that?  Well, I went through a phase of stripping some of my reels completely down to clean 'em up.  Those reels are nice and clean, and lonely, as they've been sitting in their bags waiting to be reassembled.  After some frustrating and unproductive sessions of trying to put them back together myself, I've just kept them in their bags.  I'm hoping to meet some folks on here who might be willing to do some reassembling for me, in exchange for a reel or reels of their choice from my bag collection.  When my reels are all back together, I will feel more comfortable about working on them myself.  I'd like to try some of the hot rodding reel upgrades that I've read about here.

In any event, hello to you all.  I'm happy to be here, and looking forward to getting involved.

HA! Welcome, Defender, from another Cornhusker! Been to Hastings many times.  Wink

I have a brother-in-law, sister-in-law, niece and a couple of friends that live in Hastings, and they all love to fish, especially for walleye & white bass.

I'm into spinners, never touch conventionals, but there are a lot of great guys here that will guide you through the process of putting your disassembled reels back together. Enjoy your time here, it's good people.
