Fishing in Ireland, salmon fishing

Cardinal 66

Pulled out my old cardinal 66 spinning reel to give it a good clean and lub.

The old girl still runs smoothly and I get great pleasure form using it. It is heavy and the retrieve rate is slow compared to modern reels but I like the solid feel I get when using it. Looks like I need to invest in some new braid as the spool is looking decidedly low.
