It's sad one can't let a reel sing.
You know, the sound that increases your heart beat a bit more than the tug, the run, the jump. (the adrenaline rush)
I hate and love the mute on my baitcaster.
I can fish stealth or, if I know I'm alone (not these days!) turn it on.
Got some old reels I wanna hear sing again (no mute) but there's no quiet (for any length of time) spots.
They're not getting rusty, just waiting.
Sure you can find those spots but one Zzzzing and the spot is gone.
The hordes descend upon you like flies.
Zinging reels draw more attention than car alarms.
(maybe car alarm people could look into that)
Mine was on mute this weekend but every fish jump, bowed rod, or reel scream; made it look like a shopping spree at Walmart.
Felt sorry for some of the sincere fishers out there.
For me, it was time to play look and laugh then go hiking.

Sorry, I can't give that up.
My Islander IR4-LA makes the most beautiful music and if I can hear it at least once per stillwater trip it is more than worth it.
