    Default Favourite reel.

    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 Click here to enlarge

    Default Marquis

    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.
