SHIMANO Ocea Jigger 1500P Reel (circa 2006) - Unearthing a historic gem from Japan

 PE3 Species Beware !!

Welcome the Original that did it all on the East Coast.  Envy and evergreen of party boat sharpies that had the edge of best tackle offered at the time.  Finally got my hands on one.

Brought myself to Seven Islands in Sheung Wan, Hong Kong today to share.  I was pleasantly greeted by a nice lady who is the mother of owner Simon.  We chatted it up about fishing and gear for over an hour.  She gladly helped me unearth this gem of a reel in the perfect PE3 size. (thanks for the help!)

Hopefully I can fit the fisherman knob on this older generation jigger as well  =D
