Spinning reels

Well an interesting weekend… Did the rounds on various river beats and Luckfield lake, one or two fish being caught and happy anglers.
Spent this afternoon with my daughter, a friend and his daughter on a secluded lake, rod and line fishing for fish for a health check. We managed to catch the required amount of Roach, Rudd and Bream, but struggled with the Carp. This means a crack of dawn start in the morning, fishing at first light, fish delivery to the lab followed by an E.A. meeting at 10am prompt.
I am going to do one or two tackle reviews, of items that we sell in our shop (or items i can order in) firstly the little Shimano EXAGE 2500RA, finding heavy spinning rods and reels hard work I have down sized, this little reel holds 150m of 10lb line and is a dream to use, very smooth with a good drag system, casts like a dream and works those little plugs a treat….

Cute little reel

Cute little popper

    A nice leisurely afternoon it was and there were fish about despite the low tide, when the sun’s shining you can’t beat wandering along a beach chucking a plug out.
