More stuff found in the depths of the cupboard  *smiley-grin*

These were good little fly reels and a popular choice back in the day  :)

My first reel was a 395, it's still going strong. Landed my first Salmon on the fly using it

My first feel was an automatic Mitchell, if you caught a half punner it would water ski across the surface to you😊

And here's another one that was a popular choice.

It was a bit rough when I got it, but there again, it has stood the test of time and still works absolutely fine  *smiley-grin*

Still got my Magnum bought new when they were introduced and that works fine too. Must try it on the 15' wafter - may balance it nicely. Which makes me think - what is the best way to pack a small arbor reel to make it like a large arbor? Need to replace the existing 10 weight line for a 3 weight.
