Dear old friend,

For almost 25 years you were at my right hand.

You helped me cast away my anxieties.

Sure, there were times you were hard to handle, a bit of a crank, and it seems I was constantly bailing you out.

And there were times I sent you reeling as well, but you always managed to regain your bearings.

You were always willing to cut me some slack and not be too much of a drag.

While we certainly tangled a time or two, and there were many snags along the way, we always made it through. Together!

It’s time for you to get the rest you deserve.

But before you retire, let’s go for a spin…one last time!

Thanks old friend.

Yours truly,

I.M. Angler

How about you? Do you have gear that has been with you for years?
