Emmrod Packer and ABU

Shot this short video yesterday with the Replay XD1080P.  With little time to fish myself lately I still get questions about the various pieces of an Emmrod outfit.  This rig is a sweet heart, old fashioned but very effective.  The metal Emmrod Packer reminds me of the rod handles we used in the early 60's casting my Dad's old Ocean City thumb busters.  Combined with an ABU round casting reel like the 4600 C4 the rig can handle big fish.  The older style round reels are easier to cast with a 7 coil tip rather than a 4 coil.  Don't worry about stopping power however those 7 coil rods have landed fish in excess of 20lbs for me.
