I'll add a Smallmouth caught on 70+ year old tackle spring 2011
Rod: Goodwin Granger Favorite baitcaster (bamboo)
Reel: Brooklure #35 level wind bait reel
Awesome fish, Royce! I'd bet that smallie goes 5 pounds. The Brooklure #35 was a Bronson trade reel made for Spiegel & Co. ca. 1940. And, of course, the Granger is a true classic from Denver.
