What A Good Idea

I Want You, I Need You, I Love You*

From Flyfishmagazine come news of a reeelly nice reel, with a reeeelly good idea, and with a reeeeeelly high price.

hardy-te.jpgThe Hardy Swift TE Reel includes an adjustable cantilevered beam that is adjustable for balance. Sounds like the perfect reason to get one. “If only this outfit was better balanced . . . . . ”

The reel is currently only available in 7/8 and can be found on the web for a wide range of prices. For just £350.00 it sounds like a deal. Searching a bit can bring the price down to the more reasonable £313.99 range, with a spare spool only £115.99.

Look at Cheshire Fishing for some prices in British currency, or check out The Evening Hatch for deals if you use American Money. Now I just need a rationalization for using an eight weight rod to catch a 10″ brook trout, or a even a 22″ Rainbow. “WIND,” that’s it, I’ll bet the wind can be overcome with this, and a new rod to match.
