Always looking for the next best thing...

In case the tackle fairy is surfing blogspot late at night, I thought I would just throw this out to the universe. I would really really like one of these:

But I would really really like it to be in this colour:

My goal for 2012 is to master fishing with a centerpin. My fishing partners both used one of these in the last year and rave about the action.. I need to keep up with the Jones's! I have been using my Shimano Curado 200E7 for the past year and I love it. It is smooth, easy to handle and has never let me down. I love that it is low profile but is strong enough and holds enough line for the kind of large salmon we go after. It will always be my 'go to' reel but I am ready for a new challenge.

I wonder which of the boys is going to let me practice on their precious Islander?


  1. Best production centrepin reel ever manufactured. Awesome lines and flawless performance. Form meets function on these reels.
    I have three...I love them that much. I have lots of centre pins in my collection but always go back to the IS...
    Get one...soon... :0)

  2. I am completely sold on the Islander, now I just need to decide on a pin rod that is not too heavy or long for my delicate (weak) arms.
