Zebco 202, then 404. Then I got my first spinning combo, a little Heddon reel on a 6 foot rod. Caught a 2 lb. bass on my first cast with it on a red fliptail worm. The good old days...
Hell yall call Stalls Zebco so I called my Zebco a Staal, my first reel was a Zebco 33 and I still have it and its still like a tank.
chickenbone...what do you mean, you ain't old enough to for anything to be a LONG TIME AGO!!!okeJohn B. (9/13/2009)i figured alot of people would say zebco!!!
i rember the first (real) fish i caught on my combo.... my dad was about to go on a 4 day hitch on a commercial boat and i was catching pinfish at the moorings for him,,, when all of a sudden this little rat red came up and ate my bait...
<U>dang that was a long time ago</U>.
John B. (9/12/2009)i borrowed alot of my dad's stuff when i was really young, lots of mitchells and z series penns... but MY first combo was a penn 712z, on a 6'6" fenwick custom wrapped... i remember fishing off a dock in hoffman bayou one time when i was around 6 and having a live shrimp on my hook... i set the rod down on the dock, with the shrimp hanging in the water... went to go get a drink, and heard 2 splashes, 1 was a fish exploding on the shrimp, and the other was the combo flying off the dock... i swam around that dock for 3 hours and eventually got it back... my dad would have been red hot if i had lost it...
i have that combo hanging on my wall... lots of good memories.
