Autumn purchases

Mitchell Avocet II S2000 spinning reelJust to make sure everything is perfect prior my trip to Kanieris lake, i visited Salmo shop here in Riga. It took me 2 hours to make all the purchases i wanted.

First of all it is spinning rod, i was planning to buy 2.40m rod, but it turned out to be, that only 2.70m one managed to satisfy my needs! This is Salmo Elite Attack Pro Series, 2.70m with casting weight 5-28g. I must say, this is my first semi-pro spinning ever. The price was LVL 31 with discount, and normal price was LVL 51.

Next was spinning reel, i needed a good one, but inexpensive. The choice went to Mitchell Avacet II S2000. Quite light and handy reel with 4 bearings. And of course lures, this time i took one piece of every kind. One spinner, one popper, one small jerk, one castmaster.

Just for history: Total costs are LVL 88 🙂 (~USD 180)

Izumi Shad Live and Blue Fox Vibrax Fluorescent #5
Rapala Skitter Pop Frog, Manns 1-Minus, Gold Castmaster
Salmo Elite Attack PRO Series, 2.70m
