Some of my dad's rods and reels

Recommended Posts

I was going through some more of my late father's rods and reels today. There were a couple Ambassadeur 5000's, an early Shimano Bantam 350 and a Daiwa Procaster (lower end). The latter two seem in pretty badly worn. I don't know what, if anything, I will do with these. Messing with them just reminds me of the times we had together.

 

The rods look like they're in good shape. From left to right:

ABU Garcia Harold Ensley Signature 96% graphite 6' Light (this one intrigues me because I was complaining earlier that the small Pop R really needed a lighter rod.

Vintage Berkley Lightning Rod 6' MH. It feels like a Hvy-Fast to me. Dig that short pistol grip! Probably the most my dad ever spent on a rod.

Renegade Pro Series 6'6" MH

Shakespear Sigma Titanium 96% graphite 6'6" MH

 

I know none of these are really good quality. That was not my dad's priority. He just wanted something to take with me.

Yeah, I definitely needed some more in there. 😀 Check out the old ice fishing tip-up in the corner. At least I think that's what it's called. We don't get much hard water in SC. It has a license tag from NY Mills, NY that actually has the person's name stamped on it. The reel is a wooden thread spool.
