Re: Straight mono on a large arbor fly reel
get an Alvey reel, like a fly reel in the way you reel but can cast also. perfect for what you want. the 45C1 holds around 400 yards of 10lb. mono. I have used them for years at the beach. plan to use it on my pontoon boat.
Cabelas carrys them still I think, I got mine for 45.00 at Dundee Mi.Alvey Reels USA - Salmon & Steelhead Reels
I did not escape.....they gave me a day pass!
