    Default Shakespeare 2052 Model EE

    I found this one hiding in a bucket at a junk shop. It was missing the bail wire. I made one out of stainless tig wire. I will have to refine it some. It isn't quite right. Yet it is serviceable Name:  20210922_171951.jpg

    I will have to get the bail wire made a little better. Then I will give it a whirl

    I love these old finds. It reminds me of all the stuff I couldn’t afford when I was a kid. Believe it or not, my only spinning reel was one made by Lionel Trains. They probably sold one or two - it was a piece of junk, especially on a solid fiberglass noodle rod.

    I know the feeling. A zebco 202 was about the extent of my budget

    Wait, WHAT ??? You had a "budget"

    Dude ... I was 18yrs old and working before I could even think about buying any fishing equipment. All the rods/reels I had before that belonged to my Grandparents, and I just got to use them whenever they took me fishing.
    First reel purchase I ever made with my own earned money was a ABU Garcia 5500C baitcast reel (at the outrageous price of $50)

    Sure whatever I could afford with the proceeds of my grass cutting activities. Saint Augustin grass and a push mower. Grass so thick the mower was down on the frame the entire time. About an acre and a half. I sure have it good now. That was rough work
