Well, I sold the Galvan Spoke4 and had some funds in the paypal acct. burning a hole in my mouse finger..... I was surfin' t he bay(Ebay) a week ago and came across a Bauer MZ4 with no bids and scooped it up. She's a little rough on the outside but smooth as butter inside, a perfect addition to my Bauer collection. Now I need a few big Bauers for my recently accuired Scot S3S 10wt and Loomis Xperience 10wt rods.

Interesting thread & lots of great looking hardware!
Mine don't even come close to comparing with some of the treasures you folks possess!

My most prized reel is a pre -Waterworks Lamson LP-2, with 2 spare spools. Also have an old Medalist 1495, several Cortland Rimfly reels in different sizes, several Okuma Sierra's in different sizes, several Okuma Intergrity's in different sizes, a couple of Albright GP reels with spare spools and an old Japanese made Automatic reel that I don't think even has a name on it.

The very first fly reel I owned is around here some place too, and old Cortland single action that came with an 8 wt fiberglass outfit, and which I really beat to heck while learning to fly fish. My father bought that outfit for me about 45 years ago. The rod has long been gone and I don't even use the reel any longer. I doubt it has any value at all, but I still keep it for sentiment.

Hi Jim,
Those old Lamson LP series reels are very prized reels. Every year, I respool many of those reels with new lines. Quality reels endure. The LP is one of those.

If you ever need that reel serviced, look up Archuleta's Reel Works. He does great work on discontinued reels.

Dennis

Dennis, thanks for the information, I'll keep it in mind should I ever need it! I take great care of my reels, and usually do my own maintenance & service of my reels, including my bait casters, and so far have not had need for parts for my Lamson. It has been a very good reel for me! I pair it with a Cabelas 4 piece 6 wt I bought in 1989, and I've caught everything from Bluegills, to Bass to Striper's with it! I actually bought that reel direct from Lamson for that rod back then, and both have been superb!

Lamson no longer has parts for LP reels. Archuleta will machine any parts just if he does not have the part.

That's great to know! But, so far I've not needed parts for the LP. Does he make parts for other types of reels? I've got a discontinued spinning reel that needs something.

As far as I know, if you contact him and then mail the reel, he can make darn near anything in the parts department.

Hi Casey,
I had a champagne Cortland Embassy (60 size, or whatever the 4-5wt size is called). I bought it on ebay for very little, and really thought it was a great reel. I switched it over to left hand wind, and the spool retaining nut would loosen from my knuckles hitting it. A bit of Loctite would have solved that, but I was dumb enough to sell it not long after buying it. It was a very classy reel, so enjoy.
