    OK, so I'll play. My response comes from all of the gear that I have upgraded over the years. My response would be line. Without good line your rod, reels, lures all become fairly useless. You can't feel anything without good line.

    Knipex bolt cutters.

    I've caught many fish on various rods, reels, line, and lures from various boats. When it comes time to cut that hook (from a fish or a hand) that piece of equipment better be within reach.

    I think I'd want to have my reel. I'd be worried using someone else's reel that there would be screws, springs, bearings, and gears flying everywhere after my atom splitting hookset. A far distance second worry would be getting a nasty backlash because I forgot to check the spool tension...

    A good quality guide! We went to eagle lake and fished with herbie, learned more in three days with him than twenty years on my own.

    I would say my electronics are probably most important. I could fish with poor equipment and even dull
    hooks...ugh. However, I feel pretty uncomfortable not knowing the water depth and not
    being able to interpret bottom.
