What is your favourite reel for your spey sticks?
I Love Hardys.
I have these.
JLH Utralight Salmon
JLH Ultralight Disc salmon
Alex Martin " Thistle " 4 1/4, apparently this was made by Dingley, the original maker of the perfect for Hardy.
Next will be a Golden JLH Salmon, anybody have one?
I have only had 2 spey setups my first was
Loop Blue 9140 with a Loop Evotec 8twelve reel. I didnt enjoy this setup as the reel was to light for the rod so i sold it.
the setup i have now is
Echo 9140 (classic) matched with a Bauer M5 and running a Delta airflow line. now this setup i can fish all day and i love it
Not a sweeter sound than the singing of a Hardy!!
would those be Marquis Salmon #1 and #2?
I have a few favorites, love my Marquis Salmon #1 & #2 they are one of the BEST! Just got a Abel Super 10 which is sexy, havent used it yet but sure sounds nice!! All in all, the Marquis is my favorite!! :beerchug:
Yes I like those Marquis as well.
They are on the horizon for future aquisition as well.
How about Perfects.
Anybody have a nice Perfect?

Perfects are perfect but find they offer the best balance with the old cane 2 handers so use the Angels with the graphite rods. The ultralights are pretty fine as well.
But Hardy all the way for nearly 50 years.
As has been said.
The sweet sweet song.
I hear Hardy are making a new edition of the Marquis Salmon reels
Has anyone heard this or seen one ???
