I always liked 1st gear the best-the one that spins the tires!
I can't throw mine away...valve leak also 30 years old-ish maybe older...Bucks Bag Mustang...Has not been used in a decade...or more...Fish Cats are what I have now... That Bucks bag is/was amazing...but I sat lower in the water in it...which is good and bad. One thing I will saw...it was a lot easier to land steelhead and salmon in when going for a Nantucket Sleighride at Drano.Buck’s Bag South Fork. Once I got the oar extensions, good went to great.
Powell LL 945. 30 years old, still my rod.
Do you move that sweet boat with oars or??
