Default Re: Orvis Far and Fine 7' 9" 5wt

That's a good looking rod. Interesting, though. I had one that I just sold. It had a wood reel seat rather than the cork. It was a later model (1997, I think). I wonder when they made the change over. And, mine was uplocking while this one is downlocking.

I just bought a 8'9" Western series from about that era and it has the cork reel seat, also. Interesting. It's also an uplocking.

Don't mean to hijack, just observing things.
