Wow! I'm honored to be mistaken for so many famous people. As Dan mentioned those indeed were the good old days, and hopefully you younger folks will have your own set of treasured fishing memories. That was my first Pate Tarpon reel. I gave it to Capt. Joe Blados some years ago and it's still as good as when I first fished it. I cannot recall the name of the rod blank. Jack Erskine from Australia who used to fish Casa Mar a lot had it made up for me. It was fiberglass and you could pull out tree trunks with it. Nowadays the same class rod with all the performance characteristics is readily available from most of the major manufacturers. In many respects things are better today.
