    Mackenzie NX1 quality

    I wouldn't hesitate, I have a 9ft 5wt NX1 and cant fault build quality or action in any way. I use it for my dry fly work on the reservoirs and it has easily handled fish 4lb plus.

    Fish remain high in the water despite the rain …. The current rod average is 4.29 The recent periods of heavy rain and high water have had an insignificant effect on the water clarity of the South Lake. Therefore this has once again produced another week of excellent sport, mostly to the...
