Thanks andy, that's why I like the picture ha it's perfect. I couldn't tell you what any of what those parts are/do but I could say electrical lol but glad to hear you're keeping busy.

As far as fishing supplies go, I'm still a novice but I did learn from the best. Grandpa would always end up catching more than he could carry home :mrgreen:. As with a lot of things, it's better to K.I.S.S here. Also this write up is for fresh water fishing.
I recommend spinning rods/reels over casting as they are just easier/more comfortable to use for most, especially those just getting started.

Reels, sorted from cheapest to priciest that I use:
  • Shakespeare Ultra 2500ULX, good beginner reel, can find it for less than $15 on ebay typically.
    Shimano AX2000FA, great beginner reel, can usually pick this up on ebay for around $15 inc shipping.
    Shimano Sienna 2500FD, Intermediate reel, a good price for this is less than $30.
    Daiwa Regal-x 2500c, Intermediate reel, My personal favorite a good price is ~$40 new but $30 or less would be ideal.
Rods, sorted from cheapest to priciest that I use:
6'6"-7' medium-heavy rods are what I suggest for beginners/intermediate.
  • Fuji Daiwa Custom Design Procaster-S 6'6 PRS662MFS-B", good beginner rod, fair price would be $20 or less for a similar rod.
    Shakespeare Ugly Stik 1100 6'6", great beginner rod, good price is around $30 but I've seen ~$20.
    FIN-NOR Profiler PFL602M, 6', amazing rod - anything FIN-NOR is great, pricey if even possible to find anymore. Inshore Fin-nors around 6-7' are going for ~$25/piece or so, I've seen lots of 2 for $50.
    Daiwa Custom Design Triforce 7', fantastic brand for beginners or intermediate, should run around $30-60 but I've seen 7' mediums going for $25 or less.
Misc, Fishing Line, etc:
Matching the rod's LB rating for the line is ideal, so a 6-15lb rod would use 10lb line. I like Daiwa as I prefer japanese anytime I can.
For bait I was taught for trout to use glitter salmon egg, Berkley powerbait specifically, I use the Extra Scent glitter and natural scent glitter, you can try the non glitter and see how it works for you but for trout this is what my grandpa swore by and I'd watch him fill up buckets/hit the catch limit in hours.
For lures, I suggest soft bait (worm/minnow lures- Berkely Gulp 1" minnows, mister twisters), for bass I recommend hard bait (jigs/crankbait). Again glitter comes in handy here, anything that will sparkle and catch their eye. In pond fishing the lighter the tackle the better or you'll scare the fish, pond fishing teaches you patience that bigger bodies of water otherwise would not reward you for.

Daiwa Regal-x 2500c, Intermediate reel
Rod, either FIN-NOR PFL602M
or, Daiwa CD Triforce 7'

Thank you Kink, never fear, at least Kink is here. I put those 3 on list via eBay. Here's a true fish tale. Back when Kid was around 8, I bought new fishing poles. Had the Bass Pro Shop service tech wind the reels.
We went for 3 days of camping & fishing at Lake Isabella. For some reason, the reels would not work, tangles, loops & more loops, unable to fish, ruined fishing trip, wasted the 3 day license....Grrrrr!
I figured out, service guy had wound all the reels backwards. In the end, dealer gave a $20 gift certificate for fresh bait, complimentary 3 day fishing licenses for us all. And rewound the reels with new line.
He was embarrassed as all get out :D We still laugh.

G'day m8's!
Just spending my time as Laibulale Yoyendayen!
Readings for today, chosen from the tribal council's recommended reading list of the most accurate tribal history, a treatise & major tome by Flavius Josephus, historian in & around 0 AD through ~100 AD. :mrgreen:

EDIT: I hunted down Elew, she's been active daily over on Minds.
I kicked Flavius Josephus to the virtual trashcan as useless propaganda, I decided I'd rather be doing something else, either more fun, or constructive prepping.
I thought it would be an enjoyable read, it's not.
It would be a wonderful sleeping aid though...1,000 times over the "boring" magnitude of "To The Lighthouse"

Tonawanda?
Oh, just planted some pretty flowers near post #19.
Fun day! Cooking Gelatin, washing windows and laughing at books for Dummies. Reworking my favorite recipes into Seal A Meal bagged recipes. Temperatures are to get down to 30F, Rain in forecast, ~45-50F in daytime.

Hey Kink, Resistors resist :D , if you had three 1K Ohm resistor in series between - & + of 6 VDC battery, and measured using VDC Meter between each Resistor measuring voltage drops from - to +, R1=2VDC, R2=4VDC, R3=6VDC, is called a voltage divider. Caps store energy charge. Common Diodes have 2 poles + & - & are one direction only to allow current flow with small voltage drop when turned on. Common Transistors are like 2 Diodes back to back.

Today I stacked firewood, bought seeds for next year's garden, and planted wheat grass for the chickens.

Hi Kink,

I want to add that Ugly Stik rods are my personal favorite. Affordable and imo well tuned. Do you have experience with them? If so, how do you rate them?
I've also found Daiwa and Shimano to have very nice products as well.

Tosca?
Listening to the only music stations I choose to hear, while I finish up gathering paperwork for taxes. 4pm is cutoff time of work. Solfeggio music, 528 Hertz. Numerous 24/7 music stations and Genres of 529 Hz music to choose from. You'll notice a feeling of calmness & JOY when you change to this Frequency. Everything is Frequency on Earth.
1940 Rockefeller's weaponizing of music into 440 Hertz tuning scale, which is designed to cause mental unrest, agitation and wanting to do war or commit other acts of violence against others. Leonard Horowitz and Sherri Kane provides this (and more) for the Planet, they're both amazing & good people.
If you google "Sherri Kane" you'd find out...about the truly evil ones.

bailing water from around the foundation, as I have been doing monthly since early october. It's pretty common to have a day once or twice a week now that I get an inch or more of rain and it's practically a flood even here at 1k elevation. got some alcohol for tonight and I am kicked up, screw you rain!

Ugly stiks/FIN-NOR are my favorite too, but Daiwa/Shimano are also quality. Really you can't go wrong with any of these brands, my lists aren't in order of what I prefer only price. I rate the ugly stik/fin-nor as my best rods currently, but the Fuji Daiwa triforce is a close runner up. Hell it's efficient now to have 2 rods setup let alone when we are hungry for some protein 5 years for now, so if you can grab a decent daiwa in addition to your main rod I say go for it, the more the merrier in this case

Torrent?
Recovering my files and bookmarks, still. Thought I'd share in PDF Zone a few more of the legitimate UFO & IFO papers :lol:

Ehh...

Today, and now Thursday I am working on Seal A Meal, laughing while bagging up Black Eyed Peas with seasoning YUMM :mrgreen:
