Well, it’s that time of year again (at last). The big tackle trade shows of EFTTEX and ICAST are behind us and fishing tackle manufacturers’ attention turns to consumer PR, building the buzz for next seasons tackle releases.

Fishing-Tackle.co.uk introduced the original Fin-Nor Marquesa way back in February 2010. We liked the build and toughness of the smaller reels for UK fishing.
A year and a half later, Fin-Nor have released a 2-speed version, further extending the strengths and capabilities of these palm sized reels. And what’s more – they’ve won an award.
The Marquesa 2-speed was awarded Best New Multiplier Continue reading “Fin-Nor Marquesa 2-Speed – Best Multiplier Reel EFTTEX 2011”
