  • Reel advice (not pretend..ha ha!!)

    I want to treat myself to a nice reel. As a beginner I don't want to spend too much. I fish in lakes with a float, for anything I can catch really!! So just a general reel.
    Could anyone advise me on a nice reel please. Probably up to about £50.

    Hi Ladyfish!

    Have started angling this year myself, fish all styles for all fish - float/feeder/weight - leaning mainly towards specimen fishing though. Invested in a Shimano exage reel - did lots of research beforehand and found this to be a good option as I wanted to limit my costs to less than £50 too. Nice smooth action and retrieval. Bought online (prices vary greatly so fish around a bit - excuse the pun!!). Another that I purchased was one of the entry level Okuma reels (Epix pro) - tried a couple out and was quite impressed with them for the money, and they have a 5 year warranty.

    Hope this helps. Be interested to hear what you decide incase you find something better.

    80lb haul of carp in a day and only been angling since June! Well chuffed!
