|Rainbow on Chautauqua Lake|
Are you an avid fisherman? Do you know somebody who is? The Mitchell 300 fishing reel would make a great gift anytime for the fisherman on your list. I wouldn't call myself an avid fisherman, but I do like to grab my tackle box, rod and reel, and get out there and hopefully catch some fish.
I Like fishing in the spring, summer and fall, I have some friends that love to ice fishing, and they are always asking me to go with them. I do like fishing, but I have no desire to be on a frozen lake in the middle of winter trying to catch some fish. So I guess that makes me a fair weather fisherman. I like to get out in the nice weather, sit by the side of lake and do some fishing and just relax.
My dad bought me a Mitchell 300 reel when I was a teenager, and I still have that reel today. I've been using it for over 40 years. I've been to many fishing spots with my reel, creeks fishing for trout, in Lake Erie fishing for walleye, and Chautauqua Lake fishing for bass and sunfish with our grandson.
I'm not an expert on fishing reels by any means, and I don't even know that much about them. What I do know is that I've used my Mitchell 300 for over 40 years now, and it has never failed me. If it ever breaks, I'll surely buy another one and probably not live to see the day that it breaks.
This is why I recommend the Mitchell 300 fishing reel as a great gift.
