High expectations, but

Now, a typhoon is approaching here and it has been raining calmly since yesterday. I expected fish would be more active than usual, and went fishing with my favorite tackle. However, things were not so cut-and-dried, and......I got skunked. Only one fish I saw today was a nice bass that followed my wood Lucky 13, but it never caught up my lure.

While I was fishing, I felt something was wrong with my reel, and I overhauled it after I got back. I found one of the centrifugal brake block (a very small part) was broken and went into a cog inside the reel. I cleaned it up and replaced the block with a new one. The reel was made more than 50 years ago, but it is still working very fine. I'd like to take care of it for many years to come.
