They're all nice! As Mr Plumb, I must admit to lking the aerial type top right. Can I ask what it is?

The good news is the fishery is in good condition with a tinge of colour and fining down nicely and has produced all week :thumbs:

 

Well well, perhaps one of us may see one of those mythical silver ghosts after all...

 

To be honest, ANY roach would do! Three years running and I still haven't even caught a tiddler! However, I have become something of an expert at decieving and skillfully landing chalk stream minnows, micro-grayling and suicidal broon troot :)

And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music

The aerial type reel is a Fred Crouch Trotter, but I had it anodised before he assembled it for me. They are usually painted.

The silver reel was just to see how light I could make the spool. It looks as though it will collapse as soon as I get a fish on, but it is surprisingly tough( I guess I'll find out if a manage to hook one of those angry Browns on Sunday). I got the weight of the reel down to around 180grms.

Both are 3.3/4 in Diameter.

You could probably reduce that further if you machined out some of the back plate, like the Loop Fly reels.

Good luck to everyone tomorrow - sounds like the beats are fishing. Hopefully, someone will connect with one of the mythical giant roach.

 

Will be looking forward to the reports on here from tomorow teatime!
