    First Fish on Fly

    Your a few years to late for me to help you . I was a crap fly tyer but my flies caught bream and salmon trout .. it took me two months to catch my first bream then better fly fishers helped me . Me I went and went and went and just went totally using flies. I never fly fished in the fresh . But if you live near West lakes try every beach that you can fish at that's what I did . You need sinking line for sinking flies . Or if you find Whiting Popper flies you need a floating line . Good luck Don't do any other Style of fishing when you fly fish and keep moving . And I was using a 6 wt .

    I can back that up after using it . Into the wind was still better with the 300 metre spool. But with it very close to making it to the middle of the Pat. And I can't get over how smaller the LT 2500 is compared to the first 2500 I used All those years ago .

    Cheers baitcaster it was hard mainly I went to use the right hand after casting .I have in two trips used it left and right . Left two fish right five fish . What I can say using it casts a lot further than a 1000 size reel thanks for the advice .

    If it's not the best reel I've ever bought it should be . I can't change it from left to right handed but it's fantastic .

    The diawa they didn't have in 2000 I could've got a 2000 in another reel more $$$$

    Ok some will know I posted in a couple more places about this reel. Seeing it is my birthday I went into tackleworld and checked the Abu Garcia reel again compared it to shimano and diawa. I am no expert in everything what did I learn the Abu Garcia spool was too shallow . Comparing diawa and shimano the assistant didn't like the shimano handle over the diawa handle . I didn't like the look of the bail arm on the shimano purchased the diawa LT exceler 2500.Looks great spooled with 5 lb braid . Handle for a change will be on the left . Now those who don't know me this will be an extra upgrade after my brain injury this difference could be a help be harder once or twice or five minutes . I'll put up a crappy picture handle now on .
