#2766, "Got the Reel"
In response to In response to 13


          

I picked up a Shimano Calcutta 400. The reel is sweet and now the quest is on for the rod. I do hear that the calcutta 400 isn't really meant for Iron so I might need to switch up with a different reel for that. I am just happy that I am half way there to the Jig "Master"

Funny story about getting the reel. My friend told me about his calcutta reel and how he would sell it to me at about 1/2 cost. We decided to meet up on the StarDust twilight on Friday to make the transaction. I whip out a new crisp C-note and hand it off to him. I took the reel and strapped it on to my rod and admired it's glitter. My friend comes back from purchasing a celebration beer from the galley. For some odd reason he decides to inspect his wallet and the C-note grew wings and decided to go man over board. I looked at my friend and both of started to laugh. I don't know what to think of it. A very expensive Twilight trip or a gift to the ocean gods. I am very thankful that my new reel didn't jump or else the whole scenario would of been a tradegy. Oh well.
