    • Hi Stephen, are you looking for one and if so are you looking for a PVC black with gold blocking, blue with gold blocking or the old blue/grey. I do have a leather case but probably a bit small for a Marquis Salmon Reel.

      Thanks for dropping by talesbytheriverbank hope you found the blog useful.
