Thread: Salmon or big game Fly Reel

  1. #1

    Salmon or big game Fly Reel

    Its not mine but I have seen this Lamson Waterworks V12 reel on the bay. I own several LWW reels and these are the rolls royce of fly reels and he /she has not used it and it is half the rrp. I only fish for trout so this is no good for me but wow HALF Price!!

    And at half price it's still 400
    No doubting the quality but for that money I'd rather have a new Danielsson and over 150 change. Have owned a variety of posh fly reels in the past. Have sold them all and fish with Vision Komas these days - the brake is fine (I don't go fishing in far flung places for enormous fish) and you don't mind scratching them.

    I thought i had seen this before http://www.flyforums.co.uk/fishing-r...ries-reel.html looks like the ebay listing will be 3rd time lucky/unlucky.
    Cheers

    For the UK fisherman , yes I agree, but, get a bonefish, tarpon or giant trevally in the salt water then you will need a hi-tech reel, this type of fishing is a "reel" test (excuse the pun) of components and drags etc

    There is an original Loop (Danielsson) Hi-Tech on ebay just now, I'd have something like that over a Lammy any day.

    I love the danielsson reels - I actually prefer the now non-loop versions, particularly the 'Original'..just lovely on a Sage rod.

    otherwise, a hardy or an abel on a Winston is the business..

    Agreed, but nothing has come close to the Danielsson-made Evotec LW (first made for Loop). Bomb proof and stunning quality machining. Very hard to find on the secondhand market which says it all really. The new ones are still superb, but the older ones have the edge IMHO
