It Just Clicked

25-04 pike from a Yorks gravel pit

Loud or quiet free spool reels? If like me you have used a fair range of free spool reels over the years you'll have noticed that some are quite loud others very quiet. I favour the ones that make the most noise for one simple reason, when you are boat fishing watching your pike floats it helps to have an audible warning of a run. Though you'll be watching your floats there will be times when you are looking the other way or making breakfast. The new Tournament linear S are superb reels with a nice noisy clicker!
