Re: Reel Love, the fly reel Picture Thread;
There was a thread a while ago about anti-reverse reels, and I just picked up this used Islander AR 4.5. Its getting mounted on my TFO Bluewater HD and spooled with a 750 grain full-sink Rio Leviathan line. It came spooled with 600 yards of gel spun backing, but I couldn't be sure of the strength or age so its gone. Its destined to tangle with some Tuna and Billfish.
Just for comparrisons sake, I placed a fun-ticket beside the reel to show its size.
