Hi mirimichi fisher,

It looks like a strong reel. You should give it a good work out on the Mirimichi Salmon. Make sure you give us a report on how you like it after some use. It does seem to have an awful lot of parts. It also has bar-stock construction with two ball bearings. Should be smooth. Probably a good buy for the money if all of those parts hold together or don't wear out.

Hi mirimichi fisher,

I am doing great. I will be very interested in how that reel works on Salmon. Make sure you let us know. Did you get some good flies that are working for you?
