In the faster-flowing rivers of New Zealand I learnt a variation on the traditional British nymphing technique, which most anglers rarely, if ever, practice
I love this reel. It was left to me by my late stepfather, who used if for years catching bonefish in the Bahamas, Christmas Island, Mexico and Cuba. I now use it for all manner of species – from exotic saltwater species like bonefish and this trevally to small trout in the reservoirs of Northamptonshire. It is perfect for both.
