LRF reel suggestion

Post by ChrisWales » Wed Sep 12 2018 19:52

Made a bit of a random purchase today in the local shop as I'd like to have a go at LRF since I live by the sea.
Need suggestions for a reasonably priced reel to go with it, also what size to go for.
I've got a bit of credit to use up at fishingmegastore (GAC) so be handy if it was sold there.
The rod I bought is one of these in the 6'1" 1-7g flavour- http://okumafishing.eu/shop/light-range-fishing/-

Any small reels will do the trick, I use okuma Safina noirs, bought a few of them dirt cheap at go outdoors, I think they are the 25 size.

Anyone have any thoughts on this one on offer at GAC, do I need to spend a bit more?

Looks ok
You can always upgrade if you enjoy the method if you need to

My limited on hols LRF work is all pretty close in and I don't see the need for anything over a 2000 size.
You wont be punishing any gearing if you are keeping it light so as long as the clutch is fairly good that looks good to me. Reels have come on a long way in the last 20 years and you get a lot of bang for your buck now. Get a sea rated reel though as the salt can destroy a fresh water reel quickly.
Love the hit!
