    Fixed Spool Reel

    I used to use Mitchell and Intrepid reels 50 odd years ago for coarse fishing but now mostly go for Shimano Baitrunners, I was just wondering if there is anything with new innovations that I should be looking at. It would appear not so I will probably stick to what I know but thanks for the input.

    Peace in the kitchen

    Oooh! Pedant alert! (I have to say, I find it difficult to resist). 10/10 Brian.

    Shakedown trip tomorrow

    Busy I'm afraid but have a good day and, hopefully, winkle something out.

    Tiddler goes to Wareham

    You're going to wear your Tiddler out with all this use. (Did that come out right?)

    Fixed Spool Reel

    I do have some Penn Spinfishers and Battles but in larger sizes, the Conflict looks good being quite light; possible option.

    Fixed Spool Reel

    I have some expensive ones bought in when I visit Florida that I use as 'holiday' reels, far too good for everyday use.

    Fixed Spool Reel

    Also one of mine. I have one I use already and another for salmon spinning, perhaps I'll nominate that for sea fishing and get a new one for the salmon.

    Fixed Spool Reel

    Ok all you tackle tarts, what's a good fixed spool reel for light spinning and for, say plaice? Thinking of 12 - 15lb line. Most of mine are used in foreign warm waters and are too big for purpose.

    Now, how do I do this?

    So, a quiet day in the sunshine, could be worse.😎

    Now, how do I do this?

    I shall be down amongst you all tomorrow and going fishing, I think Stingray has forgotten what a fish looks like. Any mackerel about?

    Secure Load

    Obviously, the problem is he only used one strap. 😄

    When I examine it, nothing much has changed.
