You Tube erie darter video
« on: September 23, 2010, 03:32:26 PM »

I stumbled across an erie darter video on Youtube today.  I don't know how to copy links, but the name of the video is "The best hand poured plastics in fishing".  The only reason I am posting this is because  I saw something that struck me as funny in this video.  It looked to me that the guy in the video was using a spinning rod upside down.  At 1:17 in the video, it gives a shot of the pole he is using (that sounds funny) and the guide closest to the reel looks like it's 3 inches high.  I thought it was funny, hope I'm right and I'm not the stupid one.  Check it out.

Some people were never taught and don't know any better, or a few just want to reel it the other way and don't know you can switch handles on some of them or get a left-handed reel. I see a lot of shore anglers who reel them upside down.

I really don't want to think about topic #2, but topic #1... at least he does it with a casting reel to slow down. If he did it with a spinning reel... I would point and laugh!

I didn't watch the whole video.  I stopped when I saw that rod upside down.

Not usually... I didn't watch the video. I don't want to learn any new bad habits...
