Milwards Matchcraft

Post by MattMinter » Mon Jun 25, 2018 7:00 pm

Took the delightful matchcraft for a spin last week, what a lovely rod, this hybrid gave the rod a proper work out on the river. Finally got a Milwards reel to hang on the rod!

Great stuff Matt. an excellent result for a super combination.

Just out of interest Matt is your Matchcraft the 10ft 6" or 12ft version? They are really nice rods and the Milwards Matchcraft reel is the perfect partner!

I forgot to mention a great picture Matt.
