    If you can find them as they are no longer made you could do worse than using Airflo Scandi Compacts.

    In general, I have found that the cheaper running lines have too much stretch in them, can you advise if that's the case with the ones from Maxcatch.

    Gallegos special #2 switch

    Fished the Gallegos 4 times and this would be a really nice rod for the more braidy stretches, have to say tho, I would want to gun up a bit more for the real monsters the river produces.

    Maxcatch Classic Reel

    I got one of these reels but from a different supplier( from memory £45) my only issues were the screws securing the reel foot are placed underneath and not on top. Loctite/superglue fixed that. On balance a very good reel for the price. Goes well switch - 13 ft rods. Steve
