I bought this Martin 61 and some blue line to go on this vintage tuna can reel. However, to match my EC Featherlight rod, I bought a cheap reel. I could've bought a gold Orvis reel to match but it's a cheap rod and I really don't need a high dollar set up to chase smallmouth bass. Besides, I already bought an Allen rod and reel and TFO rod for smallmouth bass this year.
I'll give a review on this cheap reel, my Martin tuna cans and The Fine Art of Creek Fishing. I just have to get around to spending some time on the stream but it's too dang hot.
I also bought Rainy's Evazote foam. Love it.
I hope to do some wading Saturday morning. I've got grasshoppers in my garden and yard. Hopefully, I can still #throwdahoppa. Maybe, it won't get too hot too quickly this weekend.
