Like many of us, I have more tools than I really need for working on reels.

So I decided to put together a little mobile go-bag to toss in the camper, in the field, or on a boat.

I have never needed to repair one of my reels when on a trip — but many times have been called upon to help someone else.

Small, weighs 14 pounds.

“Of course, now I am too old to be much of a fisherman, and now of course I usually fish the big waters alone, although some friends think I shouldn’t. Like many fly fishermen in western Montana where the summer days are almost Arctic in length, I often do not start fishing until the cool of the evening.

Then in the Arctic half-light of the canyon, all existence fades to a being with my soul and memories and the sounds of the Big Blackfoot River and a four-count rhythm and the hope that a fish will rise.

Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.

I am haunted by waters.”

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

Looks like you have all bases covered, Fred.

Alan's "Go Bag" might come in handy also.

How can a 14 pound tool kit NOT have an Alan Tani wrench?

 Huh?

Am I just not seeing it?

Most I ever had to do in the field was switch the handle to power mode during a deeeeep drop trip. Alan's kit will fix many things, (especially a skunkin').   Roll Eyes

No, in the field — a regular Penn wrench is just fine — stuck into a wooden file handle.

The Alan Tani wrench stays in the inside upper shop, next to the bench that I do most of my work on.

Best,

Fred

Hi Fred,

Hanging on the wall next to the Alan Tani wrench is a wrench I have never seen before. Can you please tell me what it's used for?

Thanks,

That is a highly effective and technical tool, Frank...

One end is a typical and often used 1/2” wrench — the other end is...a beer opener!

Best,

Fred
