    Hi all,

    I just picked up some yo-yo fishing reels on E-Bay today, I bought them mostly to put in my emergency kit. One question though: are they legal to use in Oregon?

    No. You can not set trap lines or leave your fishing gear unattended.

    Good for SHTF scenario or a survival situation where rules and regs are not rational.
