This is one of my favorite patterns. It’s quite simpel. The only speciality is the head, which is completely soaked with uv resin. Almost indestructable.

Some time ago, I’ve sold one of my trout reels. I ordered a new one, but I was not really satisfied. It was a good reel, it just doesn’t fit to me…hard to discribe. I’ve sold it and just some days ago, I saw a really good offer on the new Fario reel by Guideline. So, I’ve just ordered it.
The color is bronze. I’m normally more the silver, gray, titianium guy, but I decided to try something different and took the bronze color.
I like the color. Looks even better by daylight and it matches perfectly to the fancy windings on my Sage One 4 weight (I just realized this fact, after the purchase), which will be my main rod for the reel.
The reel is super light. I weighs just under 125 g incl. 100m 0,18mm braided line as backing.
I haven’t fished it yet, because here is closed season for the next months, but I’m sure it will do it’s job. The reel is very well build. Everything fits perfectly, nothing wobbles, it feels lightweight but strong.
I took some pictures of it, because I’m always glad, when I find good pictures of a product I’m interested in to buy, which are not made by the manufacturer.
I had some dubbing-mix left on the table. So, I tied Captain FuzzyBug. A weighted…thing…size 10 to be fished as a streamer or a nymph or a dry fly if you like.
It’s not fancy, it’s not special, it just catches fish. Also very good in natural colors.
So come on Captain FuzzyBug, safe the world!
