Every now and then you catch yourself looking lovingly at your fly reel don't you? Come on, it's OK to tell, part of the lore of fly fishing is the tackle. The love of fine tackle is what keeps magazines on the shelves and many a company in business.
I have been watching the favorite reel brand thread since it started and noticed some members posted photos of their favorites. So hey why not a thread where that is what you do?
Please just one brand reel per post and feel free to describe what it is that makes you love that particular reel or brand of reel. Yes it is OK to love your reel.
For my opener; A Hardy Viscount LA Disc 3.75" X 1" spool for lines 7/8. A smooth strong drag that has handled more AK. Salmon than any other reel I own and a large arbor to aid in fast retrieve when they come strait in.
