    Default 9wt Reel wanted

    Hi Gents

    A budy of mine is getting married and wants to fish on the honeymoon. He is looking for a secondhand 9wt flyreel. Can anyone assist?

    Unfotunately I would not be able to help you.. with the reel that is.

    Regarding fishing on the honeymoon, give your buddy the following advise:

    LEAVE YOUR FISHING GEAR AT HOME!!

    This was the best advise the guys on the forum gave me, I got married 3 weeks ago, went on honeymoon and no fishing, even though there was plenty of locations around. Spend every single moment with her and focus only on her, you can fish for the rest of your life, you will NEVER have another honeymoon!

    On the other hand, if you make it part of your life from the very start.....

    If she believes you to be someone you're not ... what's the point ... rather have her accept you WITH your fishing addiction from the get-go than having to have your fishing be a battle for the rest of your life.

    I am going on Honeymoon in November and the FF gear already has its place in the car.

    We agreed in principal that for each day I go Fishing she gets booked into a Spa. So I am permitted to take the gear.

    We are visiting:

    The KrugerPark (no FF)
    Mooi river (plenty of FF)
    Sabi Sabi (plenty of FF)

    But I am not going to spend every waking moment fishing. But the opportunity will be there. And SWAMBO knows that I will not fish more than spend time with her.

    No fishing on your honey moon?

    I'll never get married!!!!

    I know he is going fishing in the salt but I do not know where. I am one of the best men and I asked him not to tell me as I do not want to have a foot in mouth moment.
