Also I purchased 2 wff lines, and a magnetic net release. All are great quality and priced right! The flyboxes are great too!
Way to go Justin!
Will be buying a 3 weight reel from Allen and Co. soon. It will be replacing a redington that I paid 50% more than an Allen reel. Thats how nice they are.
The 5/6 Trout reel will replace a lost Battenkill. I like it better!

Back from the Delaware river and the drag worked very well. Landed big browns and big rainbows. The rainbow fought harder than the last 30 inch steelhead I caught, and the drag worked great.
