Thanks for the encouragement to post more photos. I was incredibly pleased to find the St. John Ard, especially in this condition. I believe it is from the 70's so probably not all that collectible---yet. None the less, a nice reel that pairs perfectly with the switch I intended to pair it up with.

Galvan reels are amazing and the photos of the Rush I have seen posted on various websites just don't do them justice. As I write it's snowing here and I'm dreaming of using the 3wt on spring creeks
Very cool nice St John. I found mine a mid seventies new in the box three years ago for an even $100, and I love it. It's my go to Steelhead reel for the switch rod. It's handled some serious AK Silvers too. Great classic reel. You'll love it after you fish it.
