If you dont mind me asking...exactly what type of vintage Abu reel were you able to sell for $275?

Not questioning it...just curious

It was a vintage Abu Ambassadeur 5000 4 screw reel, complete with leather case, tool kit, and spare spool. The reel itself had a fat black spool which I understand is very rare. The reel appeared to have never been used with not a nick in the paint. The guy that bought it was a reel collector in Alabama.

I work all week.On the weekends I find a nice chunk of ice to sit on and watch wolves circle me licking their chops. During this process I try to catch a couple of steelhead on my tip ups. While watching the tip ups and wolves I hope that Michigan opens a wolf season soon so that I can stack them up like cordwood. Mabey soon my wife can have a wolf fur coat.

I went steelhead fishing on the Kzoo the day after Christmas for the first time this year. Caught two and a nice Pike. I plan on going back.

Going to a Michigan Steelheaders Meeting for the first time in January to see what that is all about.

The fishing show season starts with the one in Detroit in January.

I hit the Maumee river for walleye as soon as March.

Then back to the big lake in April.

Here are a couple of photos from our trip this week.

Here in the west I steelhead fish all winter when water isn't blown out. Or I build a few rods repairs for friends. Also I'm a welder and I'm building stuff for my daughters high school band, carts,rack and drum stands

And Steve isn't talking West Michigan.:)

Making a fixture for re spooling line and removing it . it will be able to strip the mono and save the leadcore to be put back on. also measure reliably how much line is on the reel. I have looked at alot of line spoolers and they don't have the capacity to put the line back on ( leadcore).

I make a lot of sawdust and kindling but get lucky and turn out a decent project from time to time. This winter it's a dining set for the kids.
