Default Martin MG-3

Thanks to Ard and Ia Trouter I got the Martin MG-3 and just got it all spooled up and ready for some stream time, possibly on Friday.

Looks real good Craig. Ard was right about the backing. I don't think our stream trout are gonna spool ya.

Throw that up on the "reel love" thread when you get it on the rod and in a better place for a PIC. I will do the same soon with the Galvan Brookie I got from you.

I'm thinking I have enough backing to go chase Musky's now.

It doesn't count if you wait for them to die of natural causes before you land them.
