I hope it is not too much trouble to ask, but if you have 2-3 minutes to complete this on-line survey it would be a great help.

As a small incentive all the replies each month are put into the hat and the winner will receive a small prize. At the end of the season all the names go back in the hat for the last word in aesthetic fly reels, the new Sage CLICK.

The winners will be announced in the first Newsletter of each month. To register for the Newsletter click here.

If you would rather email your comments to please do so.

Many thanks.
