    Very nice

    I have admit that I'm pretty inept when it comes to the open face reels. Like previous comments I just stick with my 30yr old Zebco 33 Classic.

    The Zebco 33 and the Mitchel 300; both are classic reels that's for sure! Just thinking of them brings back a lot of great memories.

    10 degrees outside, good time to clean up some old tackle

    My first reel was a direct-drive bait casting reel. You wanna talk about bird's nests! Mercy! That thing, with my assistance of course, could spin a nest an osprey would have been proud of! A Mitchell 300 was my first "real" fishing reel. I did about a month's worth of odd jobs and "extras" around the home place to get that reel and a matching rod.
    Yes indeed, a Classic reel and rod combo - thanks for sharing!

    Your Mitchell 300 appears to be a second generation model re-issued by Abu. The original model 300 did not have the red stripes on the reel or line capacity markings.

    I still have the Mitchell 300 given to my dad as a gift,69,70 maybe. Both spools and mounted on an old Eagle Claw Favorite. Classic stuff for sure!

    Remember these?

    The old classic red Penn reel! My first saltwater rod and reel combo had one of these...….that was back in the 60s!

    Don't know what ever became of it. When I was 11, we moved three times in one year and I think it got put in storage during one of the moves. Never saw it again.

    45-70, the original a-salt rifle! (What is a salt rifle anyway?)

    Mitchell 330 or 440 (both have auto bails), Abu-Garcia bait casters (3500 series up to 6500 series), and Penn reels are what I have in my tackle arsenal.
