Default Sweet Find!

I went to the 127 Yard Sale this weekend. Since Thursday, I put 1460 miles on my truck. 1460 divided by 18 is 81 gallons of fuel at the cost of (average) $2.30 a gallon is $186.00. Hotel fer 3 nights, lets say $375...Food, huh can't even figure that one but probably fer me and the ole lady at least $100 a day. Brings the total costs of $861.00! (Can't really put a price on my time!) So this little 304 was very very very expensive hahaha

Let me start off by saying folks in them parts (north AL through KY) don't believe in quality fishing gear... All I found were walmart specials so when I saw a $10.00 table with a pile of reels and saw this little 304, I got a little excited!!!! I picked her up and she looked 9 outta 10 w/ a little rash on the spool. Never looked like she was fished with. Looked like someone put some 15 lb test on it so I pulled and the drag was tight. Loosened up a bit and started pulling. Good to go, and everything else worked great! So of course I paid the $10!!! I know ebay has a boat load of em ranging in prices from 10+. I went on a search fer a decent spinning rod and found an older Garcia rod that paired up w/ it nicely fer $5.00. I can't wait to get some line on her and get her doing what she was made to do!!! Something about the curves of these old Mitchell's that is appeasing to my eye!

I cleaned her up and everything is good, but if I have any issues---Ole Joe and Keith will be seeing her fer treatment!!!

Digging it brother! Hmm, I'm thinking a ceramic bearing, Carbontex drag washers, an aluminum jigging knob, & a full spool of 30 lb. braid, then put her up against some bull reds?
