Ah ye of little faith ...

Inland you build a heck of a rod (Inland was sweet enough to send me his 'custom built' Burkie... Dear God does this man know what he's doing!!!) but as they would say in "Fiddler on the Roof."

TRADITION!!

I 'learned' on a greenheart with a silk line about 50 years ago. Nothing like it ... back to "roots."

Sigh ... wish the darned things didn't cost so much, re-greasing your line twice a day, etc.

Malcom's in the Grove! Bless you my Son (should say Willie's probably as old as I am, ergo .. the Tradition.)

Life is pretty darned good.

Got a hook-keeper on my 7136 and it's STAYING !!I use it to place the rod in the trunk of the car and to walk through the bush to those secret spots on the Matapedia etc !(down near the cork seems to keep the hoook from catching onto branches etc.That being said i dohoo it onto a guide but run the leader through a reel piller instead of around the sharp edges of the reel foot
Cheers
Brian

Silks ok but

I would only use wooden rods for holding up the peas.
Duck and disappear.

Too late to duck and disappear; we know where you live ... even if it's 'far, far away.' "Bruno," a rather large Italian fellow, will be looking you up.

William, you may be right. The Brit's couldn't

keep the Scots under control and they've had several hundred years to try. I think it's that "Kilt" thing they ware?

The "Fun Police" just left my house having collected all my sink tips and anything with rubber legs. They did not get my one and only Intruder or my Stoneflies.

Why didn't somebody tell me about those guys? Tougher than the guys in suits in "Matrix Reloaded!"

Hook Keepers and the Lot

- I once saw a small device used on a two hander that was a attached to the second guide bracket. The device looked like a small cork with a dowel through it at a slight angle. The leader went around the reel seat and up to the second guide and then reversed on the small dowel. Then the hook was slipped into the leg of the first guide in the right direction for traveling with the rod. The device was very small and just let the line reverse direction to hold the double salmon hook at the first stripping guide.
It looked pretty Yankee to me but it worked pretty well - I have to admit I had never tried in on my 7136-4, but I usually am restricted to single hooks anyway. Have at it.......

Hook Keeper cont.

Thinking more about it, a small "S" hook would perform the same function and be available in any hardware store in small sizes to accomplish the same thing. Has anybody tried this approach and if so, can you comment on whether it was convenient and/or effective ?
