Here’s another of what should become a great tradition here at The Honest Angler. We’re giving away a brand-new Abu Garcia 6500C3 baitcast reel, the very same one you saw described as “The World’s Best Reel” in an earlier posting.


All you have to do to have a chance at winning is to post a comment telling me why you need this reel. I’ll review the responses and pick a winner. Make your reasons short and sweet or post your life saga…anything goes. I promise my judging will be arbitrary, capricious, and totally unpredictable. The most accurate answer might win. Or the funniest. Maybe even the most pathetic.

The reel is new and unfished. What you won’t get with it is the original box and paperwork because I can’t remember what I did with them. I think this might be an age-related problem, but I’m not sure of that, either.

Anyway, go for it. I’ll pick a winner in a couple of weeks.
