    Purchased my first entry level mooching reel ( Daiwa M1 Plus) to see if what everyone was saying about them is true. When I ask fisherman how they like using mooching reels they all say its the only way to go. Thought I would give it a try and see if I get hooked. In addition to the Daiwa I...

    So I've been contemplating getting a new downrigger rod to go with my Islander MR3, single action reel.... Choices rattling around my head are a Sage SA4120 or getting a custom 10'6" Rainshadow rod of the equivalent. Some guys are saying that a 12' rod is simply too much rod for downrigger or...

    I just purchased a new Shimano Mooching Reel and was a little disappointed. Apparently all the new reels come with some drag, even when you loosen it off all the way? And when you crank it tight they still allow line to spool off? I like to have full control of the tension. I took the reel back...

    So after a bad day on the river my reel broke after a bad spill wading. Anyone have a recommendation for a reel for chinook drift fishing. I prefer centerpin but anything works.
