Reelin And A Rockin

I was in my dad's shed at his beach house and I noticed all the fishing rods hanging over my head. The intricate mechanisms of the reels drew me in. These were six different ones even though some look like I drew them twice. I like putting a bunch of similar items on a page especially unusual ones. This drawing is a perfect symbol of summer on the east coast. I can remember my dad giving me a deep sea rod and reel for Christmas as a little kid. There was nothing like the clicking sound it made when you were reeling it in. I'm sure I caught a bunch of tuna, striped bass and blue fish with it.
