A reel that talks to you will tell you how it is feeling and whether or not it needs anything.

Another Plus of a noisy Reel is that it can Vibrate down the Line and wake up those Sleepy Fish !

I have the following so far:

Hydrogen Peroxide to wash hands
Toiletries
Clothes -shorts, long pants, t-shirts (long and shot sleeves), sweatshirt,…
Sunscreen
Sunglasses
Hat
Boots
Passport
CA fishing license
Towels

Only things I have on my list that you don't is a small flashlight (mine doubles as a UV squid lure light), a light windbreaker, and a bottle of WT101.  Smiley
Optional items - reading material (I bring a Kindle) and a folding chair. At my age, the chair isn't really an option.

I'm using Spectra with stainless insert guides and will be proud if I can ever make a groove of my own.

They say to drag a cotton ball or piece of nylon stocking through the guide to highlight a crack or groove.

That was the trick. Thanks.

If you want to wear out some metal rings, you need to wind under heavy load.  It was more of a problem for larger saltwater rods.  

And I never knew of the existence of  the wind-on multistrand wire that Jeri mentioned. Can't imangine anything rougher on guides than that stuff  on a trolling rod.

Always learning something new here.

Need your help as I’m also bringing my nephew on his first ling range trip and I do t even remember where my check list went or what is even on the check list.

Thank you for your help as I’m just drawing blanks.

The marlin are few and far between here in Madeira right now, but Pesca Grossa Captain Gerard Frothy de Silva  managed to find a nice bigeye.  In the background is Cabo Girao, the second highest sea cliff in Europe, and historically one the world's best grander grounds.

Thank You, Michael!

Your expertise, willingness to participate and share, plus the couple of lifetimes of knowledge about Penn, Ocean City and other reels — are an honor above honors to be shared with our Alan Tani Website.

It is the difference between just knowing a subject as well as you do — and keeping it to yourself…

Or, as you and Ray have done — share your knowledge with the Angling World for current and future generations…

Are light years apart.

We all miss Ray immensely — but your continued research and work has kept his work alive also.

Thank you, for your expert research books on Penn & Ocean City.

I know you are buried with work, research, family, your profession, and your business — so your offerings to us are truly appreciated.

Please put me on the list when the next books are available — I look forward to purchasing all of these for the top of my bench.  Immediate payment either now or then. 

Your work, along with Ben Wright’s books — are my Reel Bibles.

All the Best,

Thank you very much for the Kudo's Fred. I know this is a mostly Penn site. I am hoping for an end of year release for the Penn Blue Book Volume II, but can't promise.

There will be Second Edition Ocean City books. A Hard Cover in a color version and a second edition soft cover. The second editions are not going to add much content, They are simply going to correct the many printer mistakes that were in the first book. the exciting reprints will be the hard cover. It will be in color. I have not seen it yet, but I am looking forward to that one.
