A great big renovation that started this week and will continue for four months and involves them essentially lopping the back of their house off, and digging out this big hole and.. He listens to it for an hour in the morning and then heads off to the studio, leaving me to wonder if the demolition would go faster if I went over tonight with a sledgehammer and relieved a little stress. Very exciting, if in somewhat slow motion.

Francisville, LA, has always been a happy marriage of residential and commercial structures, its gingerbread-trimmed Victorian dwelling houses co-existing shoulder-to-shoulder with vibrant small businesses, houses of worship, schools and other structures. Thus it is no surprise that its th birthday celebration this month should be just such a mixture, an appreciation of the past joined with enjoyment of the present and anticipation of the future.
Freyhan had arrived in this country a penniless peddler in the s and prospered sufficiently as a supply merchant to the cotton empire that he was considered one of the wealthiest men in the state at the time of his death. For half a century the Freyhan School educated several generations of St. Francisville students, some even riding horseback from the surrounding countryside to attend classes, from which they were dismissed early on stormy days to get home safely before the creeks swelled with rainwater and became impassable.

The two writers I would recommend to you are Daniel Skupien 1 and Simon Shimomura 2 and I would whole-heartedly commend you buy their beautiful, most informative books. I have all 3 in my armoury of useful reading material about ABU. Briefly I have noticed many changes in the numbering systems from my earliest Records, where often no numbers were engraved at all, through to the current reels.
Of most interest to me is the period from the 50’s to the 80’s. I guess the Borgrstom family had no concept at all of how significant ABU would become over the next 5 decades and little thought was given to inventory control, numbering models etc as they concentration was on just making the best!
On the other hand, my knowledge of Zebco reels dates back 61 years. Mine is hands on experience dating to at the age of 8 when my dad bought his first Black 33 and I thought it was the most beautiful reel I’d ever seen.

Looking at areas within the Calcasieu Estuary I noted an imagery date of May 18th, When using Google Earth the imagery date appears in the lower left hand corner of the image. Previously the most recent imagery I was finding of hte Louisiana coast on Google earth was While it’s a little older than the new imagery available on Google Earth, I do find it to be of a higher resolution than what is available on Google Earth. Google Earth however is a little easier to use. Generally I’ll use Google Earth to look for areas I want to fish, or other features, then if I want a closer look than what the imagery on Google Earth can provide, I’ll use Lacoast.
April 4th, Feeling Springy After the longest, most fishles, miserable winter I can remember, I was finally able to shake the fierce case of the shack nasties, winter blues, or whatever you call the malady of going entirely too long without feeling a tug on the line. Saturday morning weather, tide and opportunity all came together for me to get on the water.
The predicted tide was fairly low, wind predictions light, and temperatures have been warm for a couple of weeks so my suspicion was that the redfish should finally be on the flats. Early Saturday morning my buddy Rusty met me at my house. Now Rusty is a great guy, a very good friend and a good fisherman, but he operates on “Rusty” time. Knowing that I wanted to be on the water at very first light, I asked Rusty to meet me at 5:

If there are no anti- reverse arms riveted into the back of the body The arms that catch the pinion gear, when the crank handle is move backward that means pre to The main body also could be removed without the handle being removed, and these reels are to 74 or 75 and thereafter. If you are wondering how the anti-reverse worked on these old and s without the reverse arms on the back of the bodies, it had to do with the rotor lever.
Normal water levels on the main stem are from to feet or to cfs. Anglers should use caution above feet and the river is not wadable at feet and above.
I got to do something kinda neat this morning. I went back to my little peach grove and collected a couple dozen ripe, sweet, juicy specimens then swung by the garden to pick a few tomatoes, some banana peppers and a green pepper. Lastly, a trip out to my herb pots netted a handful of fragrant basil and a few sprigs of fresh parsley. After halving and pitting the peaches, I placed them flesh side down on the griddle.
Seeded and chopped banana peppers soon joined the peaches with a happy sizzle. While the peaches and peppers seared, I chopped tomatoes and green pepper and mixed in minced basil and parsley. Just after the peaches began caramelizing, I pulled them and the lightly charred peppers off the griddle.
I believe this is the order of boxes from the first in the back row left to the s box in the front row right. I have about of them from the first black one to the ones made about 10 years ago.

This reel took the specimen reel world by storm and anyone who was a serious Carp fishermen at the time would of had at least one set of them in his armory. If Abu made one reel where the sales were very big it was the Cardinal 55 and in the fleet they also had a ultralite reel in the shape of the 52, a slightly bigger reel with the 54 and the Pike and Salmon reel the One of the beauties of these reels is its totally ambidextrous, just un-wind the small round locking button on the handle and swap sides, at the time a simple cost effective way of having left and right hand wind reels.
Another series of similar reels but made a lot cheaper was the , , and the , these were solely right hand wind reels and not ambidextrous. The spools had writings on them and on the 15 series they were silver as were the declas on the sides of the housing, on the original 50 series all the writings were done in gold Sadly the period of such a successful reel was very short lived, 4 years in total, Times were becoming hard for Abu and most of their ranges of reels that were far superior than most of the competition started to fade away and cheaper plastic rubbish was made that lost all its engineering qualities.
There were many “spin-offs” of the 50 series reels mainly sold to America, Zebco had a range of reels better know as the , and the which were also painted a different color, a khaki brown color with the usual black rotor, black and gold decals and red and black drag knobs, there was also the same European reels but with Garcia in red on the decal.
Below is some of the reels I have in my collection and I still have a set of 55,s I use today, they are the remains of my Carp fishing days and will remain here just incase I go back to it. You will notice the reel is based on the , its silver writings on the decal and of course its not ambidextrous but look a bit harder at the rotor, no longer is the spool skirted but rides inside the rotor. Even though its rare its definatley not for me, I will stick with my 55’s Last edited by BeechmereLake on Mon Dec 05,
