I'll make you a hell of a deal on a 5wt 5 piece Allbright if you want a "good enough" back up. The thing is pretty much brand new as that's what I bought it for. Like your Orvis I have a 4wt JK Fisher I love, but its getting battle scarred and old, and sadly the company is out of business, so when its gone its gone. I found a great deal on Loomis GL3 on Ebay and so now the Allbright gathers dust, but its not a bad rod. Buy a cheap Pfleugar reel for it and you're still fishing if the Orvis gives up the ghost. Say $40 bucks plus shipping?
