    Default Sound of an old reel...can't whack it .

    My Marquis reels have served me well for years
    this the no/1 I use on mt 10ft lpxe .
    What a racket they make when you get a good fish on especially an early springer like this one.

    I've had a wee bit criticism on the handling but it was a very lively fish and a difficult one...at one point I thought it was never going to stop.

    I also use Youngs reels which are just as robust and noisy as the Marquis.

    I have an LC 100 and I love the sound it makes when a large sea trout heads off into the darkness....

    That is one of the best videos I've seen Colin!! How many people saw the other fish move at 7.28? Or was it the same fish way upstream of the line in the water? We've all had that happen !!

    To anyone who argues that barbel fight as well as salmon, they should see this video!! If ever a fish deserved to go back.....

    Great video and I think your fish handling was as good as it could have been in the circumstances.

    I took one of my old system 2 8/9's out for a day a couple of weeks ago and loved the noise it made. Most of the fish I caught were grilse, albeit mainly a good stamp of grilse in the 5 to 6lb class, but there were 2 or 3 good salmon as well. What a noise when you are in to the backing on such a small arbour reel!

    Aled's comment reminded me of a night on the Barnstaple club water 20 years ago with the sound of screaming reels upstream and down. Happy days indeed.

    Nice video, it certainly was a lively one ! I've tended to get fairly silent reels but you definitely miss out on that great sound when a fish runs hard.

    Personally,I think you had a pal in a diver's suit in the river poking the fish with a pointy stick whenever it went quiet!
    I'm not jealous, envious, or a particular shade of green either, well not that much any way,Pedro.
