Re: Cheap reel for my cheap Spey set-up
Well, after watching auctions for a while I went ahead and ordered the Okuma Integrity... only $42 from Amazon (with free shipping). It might be a bit on the light side, but I can add some weight if need be. Also ordered some 30lb backing. So that's line, rod, and reel for less than the original cost of the rod. Just need a leader and some big ole' salmon flies and I'm good to go when the fall run starts... oh, and I should probably learn to cast the bugger. The bargain hunter in me is pleased.
