Re: Best reel for Winston 8' 4wt tmf ?
When I still had my "TMF" Winston 8' wt., I used to pair it with one of the old Scientific Anglers Mastery series in 4/5 weight, as I have spools for each line weight. The SA Mastery reels were British made, and were/are very light in the hand and balanced the rod perfectly.
Nowadays, you'll have to find a "used" version, as SA hasn't made the Mastery series of reels for a long time. Never did understand the reasons behind dropping that line of reels... Jerry, aka hairwing530
