My First Fishing Reel

I actually found my old fishing reel when I was scavenging through the attic the other day. Remember the Zebco 33 Classic?


This was my first fishing reel, well from what I can remember. My Dad bought this spincast fishing reel for me when I was like five or six years old. Surprisingly the Zebco 33 Classic still works perfectly.

Everything from the button, drag, and reel still works pretty smoothly. It’s amazing I was able to land any big fish with this reel back in the day! You know what’s it’s like reeling in a big pike with a crappy drag, the drag on spincast reels aren’t very comfortable.

I’m not going to knock Zebco though, this is a great fishing reel for a youngster to start off with. Maybe one day I’ll make a plaque for it, wouldn’t that be neat? lol. May sound stupid to you, but it has a lot of sentimental value to me.
