I don't mean to instigate but you will need a 3 3/8 to be well outfitted Great for 9' 5 & 6 weights..........

Ard, is that a throw down? You shouldn't tempt me.

Just saying, the reel you have is a beautiful thing but will be used on flea rods and other light sticks, check the tackle junkie threads I left you a message there about rods.

Ard,

Thanks for the suggestion on the "flea" rods. I checked out a couple of those lightweight Hardy rods yesterday at a shop. They are very nice. I especially liked the glass model.

I'm going to take my time on this one and check out a few others before taking the plunge. I'll find a nice match for that Perfect reel.

-Eric

I liked my Cabelas WLx size 2.3 so much that I bought another while they are on clearance. Guess you can say I like them if I have 2 now

These two could also go in the Rod Love thread I suppose.

But did you get a chance to have that St. John make that noise? Nice shots Jason, some beauty fish there along with the rods. What are the rods?

Awesome photos! Those could be magazine covers. Is that fish from this weekend? I'm anxious to hear how your trip with Chi went.

Default Re: Reel Love; the Fly Reel Picture Thread

Thanks for the comments guys. Those shots were taken with an iPhone 5s, I did use the edit feature to get a better end result. I have a couple of outings with that camera as what I carried with me on stream in a Lifeproof case of course and I'm pretty pleased with the results. I'll still use my point & shoot but when the weather is bad, it's a great option. See the Steelhead Pictures and Early Morning Photo threads if you're interested in a few more shots.

The first rod is a 7100 B2X and Galvan T6. I just replaced line on it and am now using Airflo's Super Dri Mend line. For nymphing/drifting, it's ideal. It replaced Rio's Indicator line and what I've found is this one is a little more delicate. It's also PVC which should help make it last longer too. The one thing I'm not crazy about is the Hot Coral color, but getting tight to fish makes me forget about it. Given the way it performed, I can live with the color.

The second rod paired with the St. John is a 6110 Z Axis switch. This is the first 2 handed rod I bought. The reel on that rod is an ideal pairing, it's very light in hand all things considered. Ohhhhh that noise! There's just something about it. It was singing a good bit over the weekend, I wish I'd landed more of them but we ran into some hot bright fish that didn't want anything to do with my flies once they had it figured out they were hooked. Not a bad problem to have, it was fun

It was a great trip, we couldn't have planned it any better. Lots of fish in the system, good numbers brought to hand, great flow/color and plenty of room to work runs and pools. The latter two can be a real challenge so based on those to elements alone, it was a great trip.
