Penn sponsored angler Gary Pye has just returned from a very successful trip to Norwegian waters. Gary was fishing from the shore with his friend and guide Ian Peacock on the island of Vega. During the week they caught numerous cod over the magical twenty pound mark and topped out with an absolute stunning fish of 36lbs 09ozs……and this is from the shore!
Gary was equipped with Penn Spinfisher 7500 reels loaded with Berkley Hi-Viz orange braid in 45lb breaking strain. He was more than impressed with the HT100 drag system that handled the powerful surges from the cod with ease. He also commented on the superb line lay that these reels have. Enabling him to consistently reach the deep water shelf where the cod were lying in wait.
