The famous nocturnal Hex hatch of the Midwest (and a few other lucky locations) stirs to the surface mythically large brown trout that only touch streamers for the rest of the year.

With a bit of help from the microscope, this specimen keys clearly and unsurprisingly to Hydropsyche.
27" brown trout, my largest ever. It was the sub-dominant fish in its pool. After this, I hooked the bigger one, but I couldn't land it.

Hi Ufenando,

I personally don't have any experience with these reels, but after checking around I found some reviews for the Marten 61 and nobody was very happy with it. I would not buy that one. As for the other one, it is a older reel so I couldn't find much about it. Buying that reel would really depend on what fish you are going for.
What price range are these reels,and what is the price range that you are willing to spend? I'm sure that you could get a reel that is newer and that would better, for a price close to those, but like I said before it really depends what your target fish is.
