Each fall we breakdown all the fishing gear, rods get re-tipped (where needed),  line guides get replaced if broken and handles get rebound before the coming season to ensure they are tip top to catch that trophy salmon or halibut….

Reels get fully serviced lubricated and parts replaced.  They are then strung with new backing and new line so they are ready for the first ZZZZZZZZZing of the season.  It is never fun when your gear is not as ready to land that fish as you are!  And come spring we are ready  to reel again…  (Martin Schotte photo)
