    Default I like them Oldies.....

    Not talkin bout those great songs from the 50's-70's (although I do have a nice collection of vinyl from that era). I'm referring to those rods and reels from that same time period. Fished the past two days with a couple of classic Fenwick glass ultra lite rods paired up with a Quick Microlite 265 and a Garcia Mitchell 308. Fish were not coming easy, hot and muggy weather, but still enjoyed being out there. Today, right before noon, I caught a Green sunfish/Gill hybrid that put a big smile on my face. Nicest one I have caught and hit a classic lure to boot. Came up and inhaled a Arbogast Teeny Hula Popper. Love that aggression they get from the Green sunfish side. Quite a thrill when landed. Here's a few pics from the 2 days. Thanks for lookin!Name:  DSC01288.jpg

    That is a nice collection of vintage gear. I recognized the Mitchell. What is the one with the red handle and drag knob
    :I would like to thank the builders of docks for giving me a place to fish and lose tackle

    DSJ,

    DAM Quick 265 Microlite from the 1960's made in West Germany. Great little reels made to last.

    Thanks for posting pictures of vintage gear still being used. Nice to see it in such great shape. My first “good” fishing rig was a Shakespeare Presidential Wonder Rod and a Mitchell 300. I was in 7th grade (1967) and purchased them with my paper route money. They were my most prized and beloved possessions. I broke the rod by leaving it unprotected in the trunk of my car a few years ago and was crushed, and mad, at my carelessness. I had a lot of wonderful adventures with that rig.Still have the Mitchell and have been watching for a Wonder Rod for years…..

    The Wonder rod I still have is yellow glass , it was my wifeís outfit when we used to fish together. She took the 408 from me and left me with a Daiwa UL reel that I had on a white Wonder rod .
    My white rod had the tip chopped off closing the hatchback of my Chevy Vega GT , I owned back then . I almost cried . I could never find another .
    Iíll have to get it out and snap a picture one day ..
