The thing is, though, we’d be lost without them; there’s nothing worse than watching another angler catch fish after fish on a line that you don’t own, it’s a nightmare scenario.
This great-looking – very trendy in fact – cassette reel from SKB is a handy addition when you have so many fly lines to accommodate, and is made from high-grade barstock T6062 aluminium machined into an ultra-light reel that’ll take a 6, 7 or 8-wt line.
The anodising is spot-on as this will stop the reel being chipped or cracked. The most impressive thing with these reels, as well as the funky colour, is their price point! They represent very good value for money, the drag system is good and is more than capable of stopping any fish we’re likely to encounter in the UK.
The cassettes are very low cost at an extra £3.50 each and everything comes in a nylon zipped pouch.
