Trudex

Trudex Domestic circumstances have meant that I've scarcely been able to think about fishing over the past two weeks. I have, however, fiddled about with a new second-hand Trudex 'pin - and christened this lovely old reel a fortnight ago on a mixed bag of roach, perch and dace. For much practical, short-range trotting and coarse fishing it seems to me that the Trudex is a splendid thing and good used models can be acquired very reasonably. They may need pimping, of course - this one did - but once pimped they spin well and are admirably reliable.

I hadn't expected to take quite so much interest in the traditional, even the nostalgic, yet for reasons I can't explain - or at least, can't explain quickly - the use of tackle of my own vintage sometimes gives me great pleasure.
