Thanks! I am also a fan of the 500 series reel. I was using my 505L on a 5 WT Z Axis. Unfortunately, the spindle cap popped off on the first day while landing my first char. Fortunately, I called Bill Archuleta and he sent out a replacement right away. My reel is now "complete" again.

wow I didn't know he had them; I used a generic nut cap that kind of stuck out a bit; did you glue this one on?

I called Bill and he made one up for me. He makes them slightly larger than the originals and used a different plastic (that won't shrink). Bill said there was no reason to use glue, just tap it in with a mallet.

Lake fishing for arctic char was fantastic. Lively fish that get into your backing.

Man I hope it never comes to that here...

Looks like a great trip! Thanks for taking us along
