Having missed this thread until a few days ago because i usually dont wander down the forums list this far, i would like to open with a reel i just received yesterday.
I got this from my dad who got it from his uncle at his death. The same great uncle to me whose old fly boxes i received a couple years ago when he died that finally got me motivated to learn to fly fish.
My "new" Berkley 510 fly reel....
Sorry for the poor quality, they are pics from my phone.
So, anyone have any personal experience with this reel? I would love to know just about anything about them. I cant really find any info on them online, just an auction or two. I need to find some line to put on it as well. I am assuming that it is in the 4/5 wt range.
I also recieved an old Eagle Claw spin/fly fish backpack rod(model UPR601
) at the same time.
