  1. Rather than have a bunch of us get together and have to wear masks and stay 6′ apart, we will meet at a predetermined location with all of the bagged Zebco Outfits. There are usually eight (8) outfits setup and in the 8 pockets in each bag. Depending on how many people signup each person will be given X number of bags to take home and setup (if needed put on a hook, sinker and bobber) and test cast each outfit. Some of them have not been used since we did this the last time, so those would just be re-inserted into a bag and set to the side to be returned to us/our storage shed art a later date. Any rod without a reel or ones needing rod or reel repairs would also be set aside to return to us for fixing. Any outfit that doesn’t cast well, needs to be re-lined with 10# monofilament line (20 yards – 60 feet — 300 yard spools of line will be provided to each volunteer). When each volunteers rods are through the process, we will arrange for pickup and return to the NKFF Storage Shed. Questions about the process should be directed to Mike Arnold at mike@nkff.org.
