In spite that my basement is filled up with rods, clothe, waders etc etc, there is always some new stuff you could use for the upcoming season – As a true Salmon Junkies I simply can’t get enough flyreels, rods, fleece jackets and silly small gadgets etc. – Hmmmmmm?

I have tried to scan the tackle market, in order to find some presents for Christmas.

A new spool too my trusty 4” Hardy Bougle reel – last time traveling to Umba, the lad who was loading the Aircraft in Copenhagen was as usual tough when handling the luggage. Next morning when I was gearing up for the next two weeks in front of the awesome Umba lodge, I discovered that the spool was squeezed badly and jammed. That in spite the reel has been placed in the middle of my big bag, surrounded by fleece, and other warm clothe for two September weeks in Umba.
