Too much reel for that rod since they say you should spend half the amount of the rod on the reel but I can always upgrade the rod in the future.
Whoever said that about what to spend on a reel/ rod sounds like the same people that claim you should spend 2 months salary on an engagement ring! I guess I can put another rod under my reel, as I spent less on my rod than the reel!

Glad to see you were able to get such a nice deal on the reel!

Ha Ha. That is probably true.

I'm a big Waterworks-Lamson fan. Can't go wrong with them.

Default Re: Another request for reel advice

I came here to get some advice on a reel for an early 1900's bamboo rod (8' 6")that I just had recently restored. I haven't fly fished for more than 40 years but decided to restore the rod and use it. I plan on using 5wt fly line to fish some local rivers and streams in Northern California. I'd like to go vintage if that makes any sense. Like I said, I'm just getting back into flyfishing. Thanks.
