Default Re: Reel Love; the Fly Reel Picture Thread

Hi Charged,

I've got an MG-7 and an MG-9 posted on here somewhere, both are in pretty sweet shape for being used at their age. Total, there are 5 Martin reels here. My most often used reel is a 1978 (purchase year) Hardy Featherweight. These were the high end Martin MG-3 and I use it more than anything I've ever owned.

You're probably correct in that for standard trout fishing the old Martins and Pflueger reels are plenty for getting it done. I do have a few Mercedes reels for salmon because they make it easier to handle big strong fish.

Nice bunch of hardware there,

Ard
