Default Re: Reel Love, the fly reel thread

You guys are so bad for me (LOL).

Reading this thread got me thinking about my reels, so in the last week I have:

Reunited my old Omni 44 (medalist) reel with the original fly rod (an old Zebco fiberglass 6 wt) and rehung it on the wall.

Found an identical reel on ebay and purchased it for $11 shipped to my house. It is now on the wall with my reconditioned (sort of) Jorgenson bamboo rod. I had to switch it over to left hand retrieve (first time for me but I got it done - woohoo)

Took the spare spools from my redington cd reels and put line on both of them (rio ST II WF) so now I have 3, 4, 5, and 6 weights covered (put 4 and 6 on the spare spools)

I still need to work on getting some photos, it is on my list to do and I will get some taken and posted soon.

Dave
