I am the very lucky recipient of this gorgeous reel built by “Watermole” it is getting its first outing this afternoon on the bank .. commissioned to celebrate the life of my Dad I can only say it is a thing of real beauty pardon the pun .. I will couple it with a very special illustrated Paul Cook carp rod also in memory of my dad to become my go to ultimate carp set up a big thank you to 2 exceptional craftsmen who have created for me instant classics that will last a lifetime 👍
Sounds like a wonderful combination and as you say from two exceptional craftsmen. :Hat:

Bit late with my response, but that reel is a serious work of engineering art! :Hat:
