Re: Pike and flysize

I misread "It held the British .." for " I held the British.." :)

Thanks Lars. I should perhaps add that I rareley fish the Baltic. I live on the Swedish Westcoast and fish for pike in rivers and lakes.

Cheers, Thomas

Re: Light reels with a room for heavy lines.

Hi,

Thanks. Anybody got other suggestions? I does not have to ba a large arbor-reel by the way. I am willing to trade some spool-diameter for less weight. :)

The reason for this is simple - we have not yet seen what good and consistent training from early age would accomplish. I have a couple of friends that compete in flycasting and as far as I can...
