Re: Reel for Hardy 5wt Deluxe Bamboo Rod?
You might try an Orvis Battenkill 5/6 English made click and pawl. They regularly sell on Ebay used for $100 or less. Another good choice for a more moderate priced reel that looks good on cane would be the Hardy Marquis 5 or the Scientific Angler System #5, both English made click and pawl reels by Hardy. You can generally find the SA reel for a little less $ even though they are the same reel and will sell for $150 or less, sometimes much less.
