No, sorry Kerry.

Sandy built this one for me and I do enjoy fishing it sometimes.

All of these rods are also 'tools of the trade', I use them when I'm working on lines.

Best wishes
Mike

Things that you find in the cupboard ..............

A couple of unused, unbranded salmon reel samples :z12

These are pretty good reels, think I've got another one somewhere.
I would sell these,  £75 each - if you would like them  :wink

Silent drag..... or......  ???

Morning Hamish :z16

Not silent, they have a slight click to them. Not sure you'd hear this over the background sounds of running water though.

Cheers
