Default Re: Reel Love, the fly reel thread

Funny you should mention Olympic reels, Ard. Here's the first fly reel I owned,
bought 30+ years ago....

I used that reel until about 9 years ago, when a shop owner told me it was
"out-dated".

I still use it on occasion, but on cane rods. It's 100% in terms of condition,
and the chrome is perfect. I paid around $15 new.

After being told my Olympic was outdated (like the fish had been updated ), I began buying "better" reels. Of all that I owned, I like the
Ross Rhythm and Evolution best. Why? I can set the drag and it stays there;
they really are maintenance-free; I don't have to think about my reel while
fishing.
