Waterworks Lamson Litespeed 3 Micra 5

Got the opportunity to buy this Waterworks Lamson Litespeed 3 Micra 5 reel for a reasonable price. So I couldn’t resist. ;-)

Like in the past, I took some pictures of the reel just for fun and as a source of pictures, which are not taken by the manufacturer. Couldn’t say how it will perform, but the first impression is very good. Good brake, nice sound, well machined and with 140,25 gram super light.

I want to use it for sea trout fishing and for my streamer fishing at home with 6 and 7 weights. Hopefully, I will hear the brake „scream“ this season.



150 m of 58lbs J-Braid as backing should be more than enough.

Jelly Bean Zonker part III This is the last of the three variations I’ve tied on the weekend. Like before tied on a @ahrexhooks NS122 Light Stinger size 6. I guess the sea trout fishermen may like the pink highlight. 😉

Jelly Bean Zonker

Today, I was playing around in the laboratory with uv resin and different powder. Just for fun, just to get new ideas. I got a two toned belly in my mind. After some testing, this little guy was born. Pretty simple, but with a little touch of finesse. It reminds me of a jelly bean, so the name was pretty simple – Jelly Bean Zonker 😉
It’s important to use a wide gap hook, so the @ahrexhooks NS122 Light Stinger size 6 was perfect for this little guy. I could imagine, that sea trout, browntrout and chub will like it. Hopefully! :-D
