    Re: Please define “intermediate”

    Re: Right Hand Technique

    In two places in your post you mention using udud for reels, but state that some reels "seem to want to start on a down..." Generally speaking, reel picking is DUDU, not UDUD. In all my years...

    Re: Looking for suggestions

    An Eastman would definitely be a step up from the Pilgrim and Ozark. Certainly a second hand Hathaway would also be great if one can be found. You might also keep your eye peeled for a second hand...
