Default Cool Reel by Hatch from Trident

I am not always a fan of special cosmetic reels but in this case...way cool! Well, its a Hatch so there is that, its is about preservationist research - education - action, too cool and, lastly, having only been there once but I will never forget it, the Turneffe Corral Atoll (in Belize) is a spectacular habitat. However, being critical old S&S, I do have an issue...the reel model is the 7+ rather than the more appropriate 9+. The 7+ is a bonefish size and I have long discouraged bonefishing, at least by wading, on Turneffe. They wade reef flats loaded with live branch coral and crunching around on that is hardly environmentally sound (plus your little fly catches on it easily). Hard core types dream of Turneffe due to its untrammeled and superb permit habitat fished from a skiff. That's what is so spectacular.

Very nice!

Just wish Hatch would offer more in terms of colored reels like this, as standard options. Sweet @ss looking reel!
