So I finally got hold of a magnifying glass, took a close look, and behold! It is definitely the work of some long-vanished jokester who, for reasons which will remain forever unknown, decided to etch a crude 1950's-style flying saucer into the Bakelite of his reel:

Maybe he was memorializing something he saw...  Roll Eyes  In any case, I sure would've liked to fish with this guy... clearly he was WAY out in left field! (But to some extent, aren't we all??)  Cheesy

I like that, yes we are all in "Left" Field, except Republicans, they are in "Right" Field. Grin

But, there is another consideration. Something that in my "Left Field" mind must be given a certain amount of credibility. That is, that just maybe, possibly  Roll Eyes, another one of these will appear, with the exact same "Alien Craft" molded into the side plate. That will be a Game Changer. Shocked Shocked Shocked

Mike,
  Molded into the plate would be different than this one that's scratched into the plate. Yes, I know you were kidding Grin
Aiala, enjoy that "far out" reel.

Sooooo......we should disregard scratchings??

I Agree, all those scratchings on paper are just scratchings and we should negate the written word.

I for one think its a message from beyond.
Our Alien watchers are telling us to disregard all other worthless persuits and stick to fishing.

I'm going on the hunt for a 113 4/0 (black plates) for my collection.  Does anyone have pictures of the earliest version of the side plates?  Also, was there a version that had the feature of changing the drags from the outside like the 113H?
Thanks

Check out Page 2 of this posting . Mike's 4/0 shows the side plates that are unique to the first year of 4/0 production .

By any chance are you a Trekkie Dominick Huh? Shocked

No Joe there is an assortment of trivial junk floating around in the brain.  Sometimes it comes to the fro when needed.  Most of it is useless.  I don't think I watched more than 3 or 4 shows ever.  Dominick

There is indeed (e.g. Medusa), but Captain Kirk battled a GornWink
