    Running salmon

    They are probably the best salmon reels in the world lots of lads using them on the Alta so that speaks for itself I’ve got him on my beat today we have had a decent week 21 fish landed biggest 16 lb but water came up over 7 ft yesterday so it’s unfishable today I e got Rio Scandinavia on my 13ft loop going by whet I’m seeing other rods using it will be the most popular Scandinavia line at the moment yes hitching is done on the wee rod with full floater very exciting way of salmon fishing here’s a vid from last year with me and A mgall form Ireland

    New scope fitted on this set up as I wasn’t too impressed with the nightforce in low light and it didn’t work well with the Pard 007 titanium delta 2.5 -15x56 HD illuminated which is more suited for the add on NV with the lower mag and side parallax decent scope for the money
