Not as impressive as Rip Tide's collection, but here's my medalists-- most are older than I....

Dog,

A 1495 1/2 was my first reel with a drag, I still have it and a little 1492 1/2 but they are with my gear in Colorado. I left two rods and reels there so I don't have to carry gear when I visit. I love em.

Can I get in on the fun? Needless to say I like English Fly reels and Scottish drinks, they somehow go together.

Row 1 L-R: Hardy Featherweight (my glass rod reel), Winston 2 7/8" Perfect (made by Hardy) goes great on a Winston TMF, Hardy JLH 5, Hardy Perfect 3 1/8" (originally owned by Rusty Gates), Hardy Marquis 6

Row 2 L-R: Hardy 1903 Bougle reissue, Abel Creek 2 Winston Green, Hardy Princess, Ross canyon 2, Hardy Marquis 8, Hardy Zenith

Row 3 L-R: Hardy Bougle Mark IV 4" (my main King Salmon spey reel), Hardy St. John 3 3/4" (my go to Steelhead killer), Hardy Gem 9/10 (great lightweight SW reel)

On the still to purchase list: Hardy St. George 2 7/8 (the new one), Hardy Perfect 3 1/8, Hardy Perfect 4", And some kind of eight weight big game reel, I'd love to see one of the new Mako's.

Burk,
I like your taste in reels (and fine spirits). You have a collection that many would be envious of.

PS: I sold a Hardy Perfect Salmon 4 1/4" reel today.

Now I'll quote just to keep them in view, I agree with the guys Burk, and also with your assessment of the CFO on the other thread. I love my CFO IV and all my Hardy reels. Very nice collection.
