    first the one I love the most with a million memories
    A Garcia Mitchell 304. I have had it 47 years at least.
    It’s been thru thick and thin and honestly I can’t remember when it was used last. The rod is long gone tho.
    Still functions and needs a cleaning. Over the next few weeks I plan on breaking the reels down, giving them a good cleaning and oiling.

    Then we have the Garcia Mitchel 486 salt water reel. Now a cat fish reel, but I am thinking of retiring this for a new catfish rig. The rod which is as old as the reel has dry rot in the handles, so I am leery of using them, going to clean them up and make wall hangers out of them
