Default Free reel

Yesterday was my lucky day...I talked to a guy down the street, new in the neighborhood. We talked about every thing in general, he's 74 and likes to fish but has a bad back and knees, he has a small lake boat and it has not seen water in over two years. He asked me if I do any saltwater fishing cause he had a reel he has never used (Diawa Sealine 400H) I said I sure do and he takes it out of the cabinet and says here it's yours, I say how much do you want for it and he tells me just bring me some nice slabs of fish...OK, what a deal...I take it home...load it up with Ande 30 lb Tourney and mounted it on a Shakespeare Tidewater stand-up rod, for bottom fishin, now for those slabs of fish......

Lucky devil........ I am kind of like him, if I have something that I don't use anymore and its still in good condition I look for someone to give/sell/trade it to. I like to see things USED not sit around and gather dust. Did he specify a species for his slabs 'O Fish????? Be good to him, maybe he's got more.......... this could be a test.......
