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.
The 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.
